Ireland Features…but Only in a TINY way in List of Most Boring Tourist Attractions in the World


In a quirky twist of fate, Ireland’s Leprechaun Museum proudly struts its stuff at a commendable 38th position in a recent study unveiling ‘the 100 most boring attractions across the globe.’ This singular appearance only highlights Ireland’s knack for keeping things interesting!

The study, conducted by Solitaired, meticulously analysed 66.7 million Google reviews of 3,290 popular tourist destinations worldwide, spanning 384 cities across 71 countries. By scrutinising keywords indicative of monotony and lifelessness, researchers pinpointed the attractions least likely to capture visitors’ interests.

While the US dominates the rankings, with seven attractions claiming the top spots for being the most uninspiring.

Branson Scenic Railway in Missouri takes the undesirable top spot as the world’s least interesting attraction, with a boredom score of five out of five. Departing from an old depot in downtown Branson, the heritage railroad travels through part of the Ozark Mountains on a 40-mile round trip.

Illuminarium Atlanta, in the U.S state of Georgia, earns the runner-up spot with a boredom score of 4.5, with Google reviewer ‘Beata Lech’ saying they ‘left after 40 minutes’ despite paying $144 (€115) for four people and ‘Mardi Graz’ adding that it was ‘cool for about the first 15 minutes’ and ‘after that… just boring’.

In third place is Tennessee’s Jurassic Jungle Boat Ride, which scored 3.7 on the boredom scale. The eight-minute boat ride, in Pigeon Forge, takes visitors along an indoor winding river passing jungle scenes with cave sets, waterfalls and mechanical dinosaurs.

On the flip-side, we did find some positive reviews for the Leprechaun Museum on Tripadvisor. A ‘Camilla M’ on Tripadvisor, wrote : ‘Was there today for the very first time and couldn’t be happier with the experience! The museum is an adventure and of itself, every new room is filled with magic and mystery. I loved exploring the Giant’s Room and the Rainbow Room!
