The Little Museum of Dublin offers an intimate and enjoyable way to learn more about Ireland's capital city. Having spent two hours there this afternoon, both the guided tour and the rustic basement cafe totally exceeded any expectation I had before the visit. Our guide Ciaran was friendly, informative and engaging to listen to and while the exhibitions on offer... More

I would highly recommend a visit to this museum.Our guide Adam had us howling with laughter as he regaled us with hilarious stories of times gone by. He is perfect for the job as he keeps his audience enthralled with his energetic and animated stories. Something for all the family here,certainly our 12 and 8 year old children loved every... More

Good collection of photographs, letters and artifacts from 20th century Dublin. Queen Victoria to JFK to U2, There's a nice letter from Samuel Beckett to a boy in Dublin too. I recommend the curator's tour at 7pm on Thursdays.

The gentleman on the front desk was very helpful. The museum itself was interesting, u would have liked to have spent more time there as we only visited to kill some time between tours.

As a part of our bus tour tickets, we were allowed free access to the Little Museum of Dublin. We were far from blown away. The first floor is plastered in a black and white 'comic' style 'arty' history of Dublin. It was a laborious read and not at all stimulating. The only room that was of particular interest was...

We absolutely loved the Little Museum of Dublin! While waiting for the tour to start we perused some of the photos and artifacts but it was really the tour that set this museum above the rest. Kiernan was a hilarious and very informative tour guide and we learned so much during our time there. We also loved the Cushman Collection... More

Really worth a visit if in Dublin for the weekend. The tour is every hour and lasts about half an hour. Gives you an insight into the history of Dublin. I am from Dublin but not living there any more. It was great to come and do the "cultural" things this time. The tour guide was very good and it... More

I happened to stop in after a tour had started and was quickly and easily invited to join. While I am not sure of wheelchair access, the tour does require a fair bit of standing and some stairs, though, I am certain, a chair for seating could be obtained. Each room contains artifacts, letters, photographs, art with a special room... More

I like museums with not-so-conservative approach, so I simply felt in love with this museum! I've never laughted so much, which is really something, as I am not from Ireland so I didn't know a lot about of the history of Dublin and I am easily bored when I have to read big chunks of text. The exhibition on the... More

I finally managed to visit the Little Museum and I'm so glad I did. This is just a great place. It is packed with memorabilia and stories... I am not originally from Dublin (or Ireland) so I'm always interested in learning about things, events, etc. that happened before I moved here. The Little Museum is the place to get all... More
