My husband and I, along with family, visited The Little Museum on September 14. We're so glad we went! Tour guide Ciaran was very knowledgeable and entertaining, and we learned a lot during our visit. Thanks, Ciaran, for an enjoyable tour.

Our visit proved to be time well spent. A great introduction to Dublin viewed over the last 100 years or so and to the people that have made the city such a unique place. A lovely setting with lots of pictures and artefacts to see and ponder. If you visit be sure to have a guided tour. In our case... More

Guided tours offer an unforgettable crash course on Irish history that will surprise, entertain, and enthrall you. Our guide, the witty Ciaran McMahon, repeatedly evoked laughter and applause from...

The Little Museum of Dublin was the most enjoyable experience of my Culture Night last Friday. Our tour guides couldn't be more charismatic, entertaining and hilarious! I learnt a lot of interesting facts about Dublin City and I will definitely go back. This is a must-do for tourists and locals!

The title is oh so cheesy, but it just expresses how much I loved the museum. We didn't know its existence before we arrived, but we learned so much from our little trip to the Little Museum. The guide (Adam, if I am recalling his name right) was so enthusiastic, energetic and empathic. He made us want to learn even... More

great little museum. Sometimes I get overwhelmed with the massive offerings of big museums but this one was a gem . For a reasonable entrance fee we we given an escorted tour of about 75 minutes through several floors of exhibits. The history and background information was woven into to the stories behind the artifacts. Very friendly, informative and well... More

Super litte museum that has grown through contributions from local Dubliners. The only drawback is the top floor which is totally dedicated to U2. Great if you like the band but considering the contributions made to Irish music by others its a bit over the top.

We visited the museum on Culture Night 2014 when many museums, galleries etc are open free of charge and late in to the night. As Dubliners we found it a great place as alot of the items there have been donated by the locals and link particularly to Dublin history. The welcome was great as was the tour and guide... More

This little museum was the highlight of our day. The staff (volunteers) were remarkable. What a wonderful wealth of knowledge about the city and its characters they shared with us. The tour guides are "great storytellers" which made the tour so much more interesting. I highly recommend taking 90 minutes to see and tour this lovely little museum. Oh, yes... More
