This tour was recommended to us by an outside guide, otherwise we could have missed this great little piece of cultural history of Dublin over the last 100 years.Very worthwhile, need to be able to stand and manage stairs. Highly recommend this little museum and the lady showing us around was very easy on the ear, quite amusing at times.... More

Everyone in our family enjoyed the visit to the Little Museum. You book a "guided tour" -- which is essentially a very entertaining monologue that involves looking around two rooms as hundreds of keepsakes while you learn the history of Dublin and Ireland in less than an hour. After that you will want to spend a bit more time browsing... More

Came home from living abroad and brought my mother to this museum on our day out. We had a fantastic time, great guides and some truly knowledgable dubs. Special mention to the lady on the top floor who's name now escapes me; great discussion of Dublin's literary heritage.

I visited this museul as I was in the nearby park and it was included in my pass. I did not regret it: a small museum, stacked with objetcs and photographs. The guide was excellent, very funny and bringed every object to life. A good way to understand Ireland's history.

Small and a quick but worth-seeing visit. Don't miss U2 memorabilia display. Good overview of city history.

We liked this museum as it is different to the other ones about. Walks packed with pictures and the tour takes 29 minutes - just the right length. You get time to explore the other elements yourself too. A hidden gem & a place I'd recommend going

Set in an old Georgian town house this museum is crammed with photos, posters and memorabilia from Dublin in the 20th century. A whistlestop guided tour (included in the entry price) kicks off your visit. Then you're free to wander. The Brendan Bracken exhibition was really interesting having not long been to Churchill's War Rooms in London. The U2 exhibition... More

We were encouraged to visit by our bus tour and also had free entry with them. Definitely worth waiting for the tour as it brings the items and photos to life. We had Justine give our tour. She made it really interesting and had lots of local knowledge. It doesn't take too long either. Go as early as you can... More
