The Irish Music Hall of Fame was a multimedia exhibition in Dublin, Ireland which opened in September 1999. It recognised what it described as the best of Irish musical talent of all types over the decades.

Overview[edit]

Musician and singer Van Morrison was the first person to be inducted into the museum. The museum was a memorabilia-filled display telling the story of Irish music through exclusive and personally donated merchandise from many important Irish musical artists including Van Morrison, U2, Sinéad O'Connor, Thin Lizzy, Rory Gallagher, The Undertones and Boyzone.

The museum has since closed and is currently looking for a new location with an undetermined reopening date.[1]
