Visited here on Saturday 19 July and was fascinated with the variety of exhibits, old photos etc.which were all very well displayed. Our guide, Godfrey, with his witty and informative commentary really brought the history of 19th and 20th century Dublin to life. I had only an hour to spare but wish I could have stayed for longer - however... More

Visited here today with my husband. Bought tickets online for 5 euro each. Have to say it was well worth the money! The guide, kieran, was very entertaining and his knowledge of Dublin was impressive. The tour lasts one hour but you can wander around the rest of the house and see lots of interesting things. Would recommend visiting this... More

I'm not into museums but I really enjoyed this place as it was quite nostalgic for me personally. Lots of childhood memories came flooding back. Our guide Adam was fantastic with his energetic presentation, which made everyone interested in what he had to say. The U2 room was great and the Mrs Brown's room was interesting. I would definitely return... More

If you get a smaller tour group (we were 30 at 2pm on a Friday), you might get a bit more out of the tour guides, who seem to all be pretty fabulous. Their knowledge of the city, and the memorabilia in the museum is excellent, and they are great entertainers, story-tellers, conversationalists. How do you get a smaller group?... More

This is just what the name implies--a little museum. There was no line, which was a plus. To me, it would not have been worth paying for, but since it was included in the Hop On bus ticket price, it was worth a few minutes.

Found the tour guide very informative and witty, the Irish history section was very good and a few interesting pieces. The Mrs Brown's boys section is a waste of space, the u2 section is small but has a few nice pieces.

I'm very glad to hear that you enjoyed the guided tour. Our Mrs Brown's Boys exhibition is in our temporary exhibition space - perhaps you would like the next show more! If you have any suggestions for how we could improve the Little Museum we would be very eager to hear them. The museum has been built from the goodwill... More

My husband and I loved this museum. Our guide, Adam (Andy?) was terrific! His energy completely made this museum! I wish we could have spent more time with him. So knowledgeable!

That's wonderful to hear! Your guide must've been Adam, since we don't have any Andys (that we're aware of). Thank you for your review! We hope you had a pleasant time in Dublin. More

As an exiled Dublin native returning for a recent weekend break, decided to kill a spare hour in the center of Dublin by visiting the Little museum of Dublin together with my Mother. The museum and it's contents are a fascinating bric-a- brac of heirlooms, memorabilia and generally varied donations by the people of Dublin themselves to create the exhibitions.... More

This is a cute little museum and the tour guides are very friendly and informative. You get about 350 years of Irish history in 45 minutes or so. It's well worth a look in.

We visited this museum whilst using the City Sightseeing Red bus hop on-hop off service. It's informative, detailed and we loved the U2 and Mrs Brown display.
