Little Museum of Dublin
Set in a Georgian townhouse, the Little Museum of Dublin looks at 20th-century life in the Irish capital. Featuring an eclectic collection of items—many of which were donated by Dubliners themselves—the exhibits cover everything from the 1916 Easter Rising to JFK’s 1963 visit to Dublin to the meteoric rise of Dublin rock band U2. 

The Basics
Admission to the museum is by guided tour, with tours starting on the hour, every hour. Guides lead visitors around three floors of exhibitions, explaining the significance of the artifact on show. Free entry to the museum is included with some Dublin sightseeing passes and as part of some hop-on hop-off city bus tours. 

Other tours, including one focusing on the role of women in Dublin’s history and a walking tour of nearby St. Stephen’s Green, are also organized by the museum. Only museum members, who pay a yearly fee, can wander the museum independently. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Little Museum of Dublin is a must for anyone who wants a deeper understanding of the city. 
  • A café is situated in the basement of the museum. 
  • The museum has cloakroom facilities where you can leave umbrellas, strollers, coats, and bags. 
  • The museum is not wheelchair-accessible.  

How to Get There
The Little Museum of Dublin is situated on the north side of St. Stephen’s Green in Dublin city center, just a 2-minute stroll from the south end of Grafton Street. Both St. Stephen’s Green and Dawson Street Luas tram stops are less than five minutes away on foot. 

When to Get There 
The Little Museum of Dublin is busiest on weekends from June to August. Though the museum is popular, restrictions on tour numbers combat crowding. If you plan on visiting in summer, book ahead to ensure you get a spot. 

Highlights of the Little Museum
The Little Museum of Dublin recounts key chapters from the city’s 20th-century history. Among the standout exhibits is the personal collection of Alfie Byrne, the most popular Lord Mayor of Dublin. The U2: Made in Dublin exhibition chronicles the story of the band over four decades and includes everything from photographs and signed albums to rare recordings and a Trabant car, while the Editor’s Room exhibit focuses on the Irish Times, one of Ireland’s leading newspapers.

Full-Day Private Jewish Heritage Tour of Ireland

Full-Day Private Jewish Heritage Tour of Ireland

This tour is hosted by myself on a very personal and private level. I am a third generation Jew born and living in this lovely city and my family's history is a wonderful illustration of how the Jewish Community in Ireland came to be. While my tours are very small group experiences I can also offer larger groups the same care and attention. Apart from the times shown at attractions we also will have relaxed strolls, pauses for coffee-even Irish Coffee! Photo stops are no problem and the entire experience will be very flexible and laid back.
