Video shows there's a lot more going on in Dublin than you thought

As the video says, if you think you know Dublin - think again.

Tourism Ireland’s new film "Dublin - Tales of the Unexpected" highlights some of the quirkier, lesser known things about our capital city.

The 66-second clip reminds Dubliners and visitors that the city has many attractions off the beaten track, such as underground mummies and the 26 towers built to battle Napoleon.

Some of our favourites from the 14 "hidden gems" are the Irish Rock N Roll Museum in Temple Bar, the ghost at Marsh’s Library and the National Leprechaun Museum.

Yeah, that’s right, a Leprechaun Museum.

Check it out.
