4 March - 3 April 2011. On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of his death, an exhibition pays tribute to one of Dublin's favourite musicians, Phil Lynott (1949-1986), the principal songwriter and frontman of the rock group Thin Lizzy. His vocals, bass guitar and cheeky charisma paved the way for the commercial success of the band's 13 albums, as well as a string of hits and sell-out shows around the world.

The collection on show is the largest public display of memoribilia relating to the rock star to date, and includes song lyrics, instruments, paintings, recordings and photographs. In 2005 a life-size bronze statue of Lynott was unveiled on Harry Street in central Dublin at a ceremony attended by his bandmates and Lynott's mother Philomena, also a well-known character about the capital.

Mon-Sat 10.00-19.00. Thurs 10.00-21.00. Sun 11.00-18.00.
