A fun way to get to know about Dublin and it is in a great location in the city centre. It is on the edge of Stephens green which is lovely to walk around.It is not the cheapest at 7 euro but is a quirky and gives you an inside into the city.

Visited this Museum recently - tour guide Adam was welcoming and enthusiastic in equal measures. The tour and museum gives a perfect potted history of Dublin through the decades and is short enough [approx. 30 minutes] for those like myself who don't fancy spending hours getting around the larger museums. Great to see the mix of nationalities visiting the museum... More

To fully appreciate this fine establishment you need to take one of the hourly tours. If you do you will be rewarded by a fascinating ramble through Dublin's turbulent past given by an erudite, eloquent and entertaining guide (Adam is very funny). All questions are graciously and knowledgeably answered, which compensates for the lack of explanatory texts. If I could,... More

An absolute must if you visit Dublin; the exhibitions are fascinating, offering glimpses of real life behind every aspect of modern history of Ireland's capital city, but most of all, go to treat yourself to a tour. We had Ciarán, an actor and comedian who volunteers as a guide at the museum - his tour was as good as the... More

Tour guide Adam was very engaging and obviously very passionate about the museum. You couldn't help but be swept along in his enthusiasm!

We visited this little gem of a place having savoured the splendour of the Book of Kells in Trinity College earlier in the day. And though the contrast was stark there was much in common by way of pieces of historical information. Our guide was very, very exuberant! The place is full of memorabilia of days gone by - it's...

I paid a visit to the Little Museum on Friday afternoon last August 22nd and thoroughly enjoyed it. I followed the recommendation to join the guided tour of the first floor and was really glad I did. The guide, Adam, was both fun and informative. He engaged with visitors, Dubs and non-Dubs alike and kept the interest of the whole... More

The Little Museum of Dublin is a quirky little place full of donated Dublin "artifacts". On its own it is maybe a little underwhelming, but the guided one hour tour (included in the entrance) makes this museum great. We had a tour led by Ciaran, and he gave a great historic tour of Dublin and Irish culture in general. He... More

This museum is right down the street from the Grafton Street entrance to St. Stephen's Green. I'd read of it before my trip, but hadn't planned to visit it due to some of the reviews saying it was kind of just a bunch of junk. I accidentally happened upon it on a Thursday night, the night before my 6:30AM taxi... More

This museum is so great. Interesting, engaging, quirky, friendly...I could have stayed there all afternoon. As a Dubliner, I probably got a little more out of it - there is no text explaining the majority of the pieces and their significance - and I am not sure what foreign visitors make of the Switzers shopping bag or the 1980s Call...
