The house is fascinating - so much history in such a small space. I could have spent hours in there but our host Fiona was super cramming so much information into a short tour keeping us entertained, educated and amused.

Lots of history crammed into a small building. Sam was a great host, he involved the audience both young and old, told stories, jokes and sang to us in fine voice. Highly recommended

The biggest difference better the Little Museum of Dublin and Kilmainham Gael & Glasnevin cemetery is the quality of the guide. The guide I had was poor. She mistakenly named Michael Collins' fiance as Kitty Kearns not Kiernan. And she stated Eamon DeValera was exempt...More

We loved our visit. June was an excellent tour guide. The length of the tour was just perfect. Kids stayed focused and interested and we were able to self guide afterwards. The U2 room was really cool as well. Definitely worth the time and price.

We believed that this was a museum of Dublin's past but it turned out to be very heavily slanted towards Irish politics. One floor is viewed as part of a guided tour, and our guide left no-one unsure about the hardships of the past. Little...More

Hi Angela Regarding your response to my review - I'm delighted to hear that there is a Women's History tour of the museum and I look forward to taking it. I don't agree with your characterisation of my review as pointed, as I believe my observations were made fairly and in good faith. Perhaps if elements of the women's history were incorporated into the main tour, it would have changed my description of it as not giving due representation to the contribution of one half of the population in our people's history. Regarding your point about the 'reality' of history being safely described as male dominated - while I don't disagree, given that it reflects a patriarchal power structure, I do believe this places all the more onus on those curating it to bring to bear those elements that exist of women's role and experience, in literature, politics, and indeed domestic life and the life of family, which is equally 'real' history. My point about the tale of the 'contraceptive train' is not that it wasn't represented - I saw what it was - but that it would make an interesting part of the tour narrative.

The guided tour takes approximately 30 minutes as they take you through about 2-3 rooms on the second floor. Then you can take however long you need to walk through the other rooms on your own. In total, less than an hour.
