This is really worth a visit whether you live in Dublin as I do or if you're a visitor. It's a condensed picture of Dublin over the last century or so. Our guide was John who really brought the whole thing alive with his anecdotes and stories.

Interesting displays brought to life by Adam's entertaining whistle-stop tour through 20th-century Dublin, as told by artefacts in the museum. We couldn't have asked for a better start to our trip to Dublin and are looking forward to returning.

It is really a quick tour of Dublin's history. Our guide was Adam and he was just a delight. You could tell he loved his city and knew how to make it interesting and fun. The U2 room was a little bizarre but in a very good way. They do assume that you are very familiar with U2 when you... More

if you're a U2 fan and you find yourself in the Little Museum of Dublin, you will feel like a child in a candy store. When we first arrived, we had a guide showing us the 1st floor which is full of Irish history, also very interesting. On the 2nd floor, where U2 room is, there was no guide and... More

We visited on Tuesday, 16th December. We're both in our 20's, from Dublin and were walking by on a shopping trip before deciding to pop in. It was great value and we were greeted by a really lovely guy at the door. We decided to take the tour and I have to give a special mention to June who is... More

Our guides are a vital part of our telling of the story of Dublin in 20th century. Bringing our visitors around our artefacts in an informative and entertaining way is what we aim to do and in your case we obviously succeeded. As for U2, what can we say, the boys are a vital part of the social and cultural... More

My family and I were in Dublin City on a Christmas shopping day out Monday Dec.15th. My daughter had complimentary tickets for The Little Museum of Dublin. I must confess I had never heard of it but we decided to visit and I can only say it was a most enjoyable experience. Situated on Stephens Green in a Georgian house... More

Thank you for your lovely review. We love it when one of our own becomes aware of our existence. It is just great that it brought back memories. Nostalgia is wonderful and we get lots of it. One absolute fact we have gleaned is that most Irish people over 40 yrs of age know the Wanderly Waggon tune and will... More

What it says on the tin. The museum is small but our guide was very interesting. We got our tickets free from the "green" Hop on Hop off bus driver.

Rolled up here to meet our ambassador for City of a Thousand Welcomes, and we where invited in to take a look around. Amazing for such a small museum to pack so much in. There is even a U2 section and also a guided tour, which I strongly advise you take. All the staff are so friendly, thanks for such... More
