We had a wonderful guided tour with Trevor White at The Little Museum of Dublin. He involved us all in the tour & it was both light & informative. It is great value for money & it gives a view of the social life in Dublin over the last century.

Why have I left it this long? A wonderful journey through the political, social and cultural history of Dublin. Amazing collection of exhibits beautifully presented in this lovely old Georgian building. Icing on the cake was Trevor's entertaining tour. He really engaged his audience with his knowledge and enthusiasm. I'll be back!

We had a quick visit to this museum. I recommend doing one of the tours, as that helps you get the most out of the exhibition. Try to pick up a leaflet which gets you €2 off the ticket price. Good value but wouldn't recommend for those who have short attention spans.

I thought the staff were fantastic and could not have been more accommodating for our 3 month old baby. The history presentation was succinct but covered the crucial parts in explaining how Ireland has go to its current position. Only went because of the entrance fee being included in the green bus ticket but so glad we did.

Our wonderful guide, June, gave a really enjoyable and informative talk and any fan of U2 should definitely include the museum of their itinerary with an exhibition dedicated to the boys from Dublin. Thanks!

This approachable and compact museum offers great background and color for any visitor to Dublin who desires context in order to appreciate contemporary Dublin. The museum's eclectic and well-organized collection delivers a great sense of the decades (and centuries) of profound social change that have forged this most interesting capital city and its colorful and complex denizens.
