There are six synagogues in Ireland. Four of these are situated in Dublin including one Progressive/Liberal Congregation. There is a synagogue in both Belfast and Cork. All synagogues have regular Services except Cork, which cannot support its very small community. Apart from the progressive/liberal synagogue in Dublin, all others are Orthodox.

It is maintained voluntarily and the exhibits range from old Irish Jewish artifacts to a mock-Jewish kitchen. Upstairs is a model of a typical Irish synagogue. This was actually a synagogue up until the 1970’s when the Jewish population in Dublin depleted.

The museum is open to the public and is available for group visits.
