Great little museum

This museum gives you a great condensed history of Dublin. Our guide, Patrick, was very nice and funny. Also, great seeing all the items that he talked about.

Educational Entertaining Exciting Engrossing All over ... an Excellent Experience Pay close attention to Abie...the history lesson goes quickly and there is a lot of information presented in a format that is easy to follow. Beautiful rooms .... Needs a larger space....more seating, but must remain in the lovely surroundings of a restored home. A welcome respite from the shops... More

I actually visited this museum on recommendation from a family member on their first trip to Dublin. It is almost information overload on this one floor museum in one of Dublin's lovely Georgian town houses. The artifacts span the history of the city and is very well worth the visit should you not have time to visit all the city's... More

We had such a wonderful time here. Our guide( unfortunately forget her name, she had glasses), she was just great. I'm a tour guide in an Art museum and she definitely kept my attention and moved everything along so swiftly, answered all my questions, no hesitation. Thank you.

We happened upon this gem while riding the Green Hop on Hop off bus, getting a complimentary visit to this museum, though it is quite reasonable and worth every Euro! Abie was very engaging and was extremely entertaining while filling my head with so much history and anecdotes about Dublin and Ireland. He answered all of our questions and more.... More

Our tour guide Abie was billed as a comedian and he did not disappoint. This is an old house with its walls filled with Dublin memorabilia. Would have been dead boring without the amusing non-stop commentary of our able guide. The tour takes 50 minutes and was time well spent

We visited the little museum after hearing about it from friends. We started our visit with a very entertaining and hilarious stand-up history of Dublin lead by Abie Philbin Bowman. What a treat! Abie weaved his way through 800 years of history in a way that left me yearning for more. The rest of the museum is self guided and... More

We had a fantastic, entertaining, knowledgable and funny guide called Abie when we visited The Little Museum Despite it only having a couple of rooms, The Little Museum crammed in more history than any other museum I've ever been to. Abie took us through 1000 years of Irish history and to say there was a laugh a minute would do... More
