The Little Museum was a great way to start our Irish vacation. We learned so much about the history of Ireland - in a very interesting and entertaining way. The museum is well done. Our guide was very good. Would definitely recommend this museum to anyone wanting to know a little about Ireland before enjoying its warmth and beauty.

This is one of the acclaimed newest additions to the cultural life of the capital. It was established and continues with Dublin-related objects and artefacts donated by the public. The many items on display give a fascinating and accurate picture of the life of Dublin and Dubliners over more than 100 years. Adjacent to the entrance is a video of... More

I have visited the little museum 3 times, each time with different family members visiting Dublin from abroad. Every visit has been really enjoyable and informative. The building itself is absolutely beautiful, and the museum is full of interesting and quirky memorabilia from life in Dublin throughout the 20th century. The staff is very welcoming and helpful, and the entry... More

This museum is s great place to spend an hour or so when you are in Dublin. It is so close to all facilities like public transport, restaurants etc. The tour guide Adam was great enthuastic and funny. He was able to take peoples ideas and make them part of the tour. The only problem was it wasn't disabled friend.

Definitely a nice little museum, I went there because my big love to U2. .on the top floor there is an entire room dedicated only to U2. There you can photographed with Bono back in his days from t zoo tv, seat in their famous car, see the Edge's guitar, and much more.

Wow! What a lovely review. Thank you! Our U2 exhibition is a permanent exhibition, and like the rest of the museum was created by public donations. I'm delighted you enjoyed your visit, and particularly the U2 room! Kind regards, Niamh Ní Riain More

It was quite good, but our tour guide was a bit wanting in sparkle and life, we could see the other half of the tour really enjoying themselves with their witty tour guide. Shame they don't teach all the guides from the same book, or else fire the ones who don't sparkle and interest.

An informal collection of historical items contributed by Dubliners themselves. A gem of a museum not to be missed. It is the perfect place to start your visit in Dublin. Great tour with passionate volunteers.

A fascinating walk through the history of Dublin. Go for the tour which is on the hour every hour. We were really well guided through the history in the space of an hour. This coupled with the Kilmainham Gaol would give you a good understanding of the route to Irish Independence. Without the tour the museum would not be as... More
