The best part of our visit was the guide accompanying us. Adam, did his very best to make this visit unforgettable! The museum without a guide might be harder to appreciate (except the U2 section, which is rather complete!), but fortunately every hour you'll have the chance to visit it with a volunteer that will give you an excellent perspective...

Well worth a visit. Delightful guides, Caoimhe and John were extremely knowledgeable and invited guests to ask about the exhibits. A wonderful trip down memory lane for all. Amazing how seeing an old photo awakens buried memories. If you have an hour to spare and are near St. Stephen's Green you won't regret it.

We hesitated a little whether to visit or not but we made the right decision and went there. The welcome by the cashier was warm. The local guide, June, was incredibly good, very enthusiastic and interesting. The collection is not comparable to a huge museum's of course, but they have some unique stuff. They also have a room dedicated to... More

Invited to the little museum by my "Dubbs" girlfriend and was more than glad I did. Adam as our tour guide was full of fun, with a wealth of knowledge, to do it as a volunteer is more than commendable. Friendly, interesting, very good value for the cost of tour. A fantastic day thanks Celine

The staff was very welcoming. I really liked the way our tour guide Ciaran explained about history of Dublin. Best tour guide I have ever met. I would really recommend people to visit this place.

We spent a great couple of hours being brought back in time by Ciaran, our Tour Guide. The tour although small packed a lot in. We learned and were reminded of our history with humour and style. Well worth a visit!!!

Firstly, I think it's important to state that the staff were very genuine and welcoming. However, I don't think there was much to see here. A visit to Kilmainham Gaol, the National Museum, Dublin Castle or even the Guinness Storehouse would in my opinion be more worthwhile. Our guide, although a nice chap, didn't help, with cringeworthy and sometimes inappropriate... More

A fascinating glimpse into the life of Dublin with memorabilia all donated by the public. As a “Dub” myself I wondered before hand if this museum would be of great interest to Non Dubliners, I was wrong. Just arrived in time for the tour which starts with the memorabilia relating to the 1916 rising and beyond, very relevant at the... More

Thanks for your lovely review. Somehow such a review from a Dub means a lot to all of us in the LMoD. Our tours are designed so that visitors from outside Dublin or Ireland can follow the turbulent and formative history of the 20th century in our fair city. Our Guinness and World War 1 is our latest exhibition and... More

Just back from a guided tour of The Little Museum of Dublin. Wow! Had the most amazing tour guide called Adam who brought my wife and myself back to Dublin in the 1900s and through most of the decades up to 1990. First let's start at the beginning. We would have walked by this treat had my wife not spotted... More

What can we say about your amazing review but 'Thank You'. We do love our extraordinary building which was built in 1776. Adam is an amazing guide who just loves his city and telling our visitors about it. We couldn't do what we do without the generosity of the people of Dublin in donating our great artefacts. It is great... More

Our trip to this museum was one of the best places we visited in Dublin. This was mainly due to the very helpful staff and Adam?our tour guide who was excellent. We can also recommend the cafe in the basement where we enjoyed a lovely lunch.
