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

The Irish Jewish Museum in Portobello, Dublin, houses a collection that includes photographs, paintings, certificates, books and artefacts covering 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.
