A small museum about the social history of Dublin. We did one of the hourly tours, and I think that really helped and we would not have gotten as much out of he museum without it. We learned a lot about Dublin and a bit of Irish history as well. Nice building, too.

We visited the Little Museum of Dublin with my two 20-something sons and their friend. It is a very interesting place with lots of off-beat displays comprising a modern history of the city. Our museum guide, Kieran, was terrific. Highly recommend that you participate in the tour - very interactive and fun. Truly, this was one of the best times... More

Was very interesting and educational. Made all the more better by the best tour guide ever. Explained very well, with fun and humour, about the recent history of Ireland and Dublin.

Do NOT visit without doing the tour. A very interesting history of Ireland and a great explanation of what you are seeing. I am glad we stopped!

this museum, located close to popular Grafton Street and Merrion Square, is well worth a visit. It is touted as sharing the history of Dublin in 29 minutes. Now, that is not completely true, because that is only the time for the guided tour of the permanent exhibition which is given every hour. There are additional exhibits and you can... More

Wonderful way to get a quick history of Dublin. Be sure to join a tour as that helps you understand the house much more.

The tour guide was funny, engaging, and put 100 years of Irish history into an hour tour. Definitely one of they highlights of my stay in Dublin

If you're not in love with Dublin and it's history yet, you will be after having visited this museum! Make sure to get a guided tour, and hope it's Ciaran who will be your guide!

We've spent the last three weeks having an outstanding holiday in London, Berlin, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, the Scottish highlands and now Dublin. Seen a lot of galleries, museums, pubs, cemeteries and national parks. Our tour of the Little Museum of Dublin was an absolute highlight. What it may lack in size it totally makes up for in brilliant curation and possibly... More

Today I went on this twice-weekly 90-minute-long tour, organised during the summer months by the Little Museum of Dublin and hosted by historian Donal Fallon. He was very enthusiastic and a fund of knowledge on the history of this park in the centre of Dublin and the colourful characters associated with St. Stephen's Green down the years. The tour was...
