Irish Jewish Museum

Portobello near South Circular Road, Dublin 8 was once highly populated by Irish Jewry. Jews have lived in Ireland since medieval times. At Walworth Road, there is a former synagogue which once catered for a congregation of 150 people. The Irish Jewish community has declined in the 20th century due to emigration to the State of Israel founded in 1948. The building consists of two adjoining terraced houses. The museum houses a large collection of memorabilia relating to the Irish Jewish community and their contribution to modern Ireland. Among the important historical Irish Jewish figures who feature include Belfast born former President of Israel Dr. Chaim Herzog who opened the museum in 1985.

The Museum invites group bookings for tours and lectures from Schools, Colleges, retirement and tour groups throughout the year.
