I was very impressed by the little museum of Dublin. Not only was it exceptionally well maintained but the sheer joy of the volunteers who work there was amazing.

Spent a lovely hour in this museum. Lots of great memories of Dublin old and new. Make sure you get a tour guide they are there on the hour every hour our tour guide was very knowledgeable and very funny. The kids loved the Mrs. Brown's Exhibition. Definitely worth a visit - book online for cheapest tickets

We're excited to hear that the kids loved our Mrs. Brown's exhibition! It's wonderful when our collection brings back personal memories for our Dublin visitors. Come back to see us again when we put up new exhibitions!

I went with friends to a tour led by Adam. It was utterly fantastic - he was very enthusiastic and got everyone engrossed and excited in the history of Dublin from the mid 1800s - present. He was knowledgable about the many pieces, most of which are posters, photographs, letters, books, and small trinkets from dublins history. They also have a cool U2 room chronicling the band's history. The staff overall were very attentive and friendly - they seemed to love their work and that can make all the difference. A true hidden gem not to be missed.

One of the best places to visit in Dublin. Even people with a good knowledge of Irish history should visit as it is a great experience! Our tour guide Kieron was brilliant and he interacted with the crowd perfectly - he definitely helped bring the historical content to life!

Me and my group highly recommend this museum! It's a great way to get an overview of the city and it's history, and our guide was amazing. If you can, try to take your tour with Adam (tours leave on the hour, and are free). He was exceptionally friendly, welcoming, and funny. He also obviously loves Dublin and it's history, and everything he had to say was genuinely interesting. It was definitely the best tour we took here, so if you have time, go and check this place out!
