The Irish Jewish Museum is located in a former Synagogue, in Dublin City. This Museum highlights the important place of Jewish influence in Ireland's cultural and historic heritage.

The Irish Jewish Museum, in Dublin City, houses a collection which includes photographs, paintings, certificates, books and artefacts concerning all aspects of Jewish life.

In addition to a general display covering the last 150 years of professional, commercial, artistic and social activity of the Jewish community, the original kitchen recreates a typical Sabbath meal setting of the early 1900s.

It was opened in 1985 by Irish born President of Israel, Chaim Herzog, and the museum also houses memorabilia relating to the Herzog family.
