The Little Museum of Dublin offers a brief, informative, and entertaining introduction into the life of the 20th-century Dublin. Located inside a Georgian townhouse, the tiny museum houses a collection of over 5,000 artifacts, most of them donated or loaned by ordinary Dubliners. The little museum's big collection includes everything from old toys and antique machines to first-edition books by celebrated local authors and rare stamps with a Dublin connection. Don't miss the exhibit dedicated to John F. Kennedy's visit to the city, and an installation focused entirely on the worldwide success of local rockers from the band "U2."

  • Visited with a Ladies Society, about 26 of us. Our guide was excellent - he really knew his stuff. It was like a very interesting history lesson of Dublin/Ireland through the ages. 
  • Dropped in with the family and found a nice surprise in a museum that is not at all museum like. Guides with a sense of humor that livened up the Dublin history. Well worth a visit.
  • A quaint place to visit. It's filled with memorabilia from different periods of Irish history, you can even touch some things! Tour guides are very engaging (even with kids) which makes it better. Has a room devoted to U2 stuff, and an area were you may be able to catch a piano recital. Can't recommend enough.
  • A great little spot! Brought a girl there as part of a first date. We're still together 2 years later :) Interesting take on Dublin. Does not take 3 years to explore (like some other museums). Try it out!
  • Worst museum I've ever been. Save your euro instead of going to this little rip-off. There's nothing to see nor interesting to learn. I'd rather spend money for pub.
  • One of my favorite museums in Dublin! Right in the heart of the city and wonderful way to spend a few hours and get acquainted with Irish history.
