Attraction Spotlight: Little Museum of Dublin
Once appropriately named but now standing three stories tall, the Little Museum of Dublin is now home to over 5000 artifacts that will keep guests busy for a few hours. Learn about Irish history and how it relates to current events going on in Ireland, followed up by a bite to eat at their in-house restaurant, Hatch and Sons.
Considered a “people’s” museum, the Little Museum of Dublin is located in what used to be a Georgian style town house erected in the 18th century. Founded by Trevor White and Simon O’Connor, the museum actually started with a public plea to help curate artifacts that were important to the people of Dublin. It was built to help chronicle and archive the history of Dublin during the 20th century through modern times, with the people’s viewpoint.
Opened in 2011, the museum is also a registered charity that has won multiple awards and was even named the “best museum” in Dublin by the Irish Times. It is estimated that over 50,000 people visit the museum on an annual basis (which is an over 100% increase in guests since the museum opened). The ultimate goal of the museum is simply to help educate the general public about the history of Dublin and Ireland and to “remember the past.”
Admission to the Little Museum is provided with a guided tour. The tours of the museum start on the hour and occur every hour that the museum is open (with the last tour starting one hour prior to closing time). The cost of the tour is included with the admission fee. Below is a brief overview of many of the exhibitions found at the museum, although they may occasionally rotate them out to feature other temporary exhibitions. Check with the museum prior to travel to verify exactly what exhibitions will be on display during a visit.
- Women at Work - This political and timely exhibition focuses on the history of women’s achievements from 1918 through current times. Taking a look at some of the most trailblazing females in Irish history (like historical figures like Hanna Sheehy-Skeffington and Eileen Gray), as well as some of the more modern female figures, the exhibit focuses on the women who helped redefine gender roles in industries that had always been considered traditionally male jobs. It has been said to be a “fitting tribute” to the women who helped shape Ireland even today (with the constant fight for gender equality and pay equity). It includes photos of women in their workplaces, films, illustrations, and audio recordings. There is also a unique feature where visitors are encouraged to add a post-it note to help answer poll questions about the state of equality in Ireland today.
- Alfie Byrne Collection - Known as the “Shaking Hand” of Dublin, Alfie Byrne is considered one of the most popular politicians to have been born in Dublin during the 20th century. However, the exhibit at the museum is the first time any collection of information about him has been on public display. Byrne was elected Lord Mayor of the city of Dublin a record 10 times over his storied political career although he does not often get mentioned in the history books. Now, 60 years after he passed away, the Little Museum seeks to give him the recognition that he deserves. The exhibit remembers and honors his life and recognizes his contributions to Dublin as the only person in history to ever serve as a TD, an MP, Lord Mayor, a Counselor, and a Senator. The collection is located on the second floor of the museum.
- Writers of Dublin - Tuesday mornings at 10:00 am, join Kathyrn McCance as she leads guests through a literary history of some of the most famous authors to come out of Dublin. Learn about Roddy Doyle, Oscar Wilde, and the complicated relationship that many of them had with the city of Dublin through their own words.
- Christy Brown - In 2014, the museum acquired an archive of poet and artist Christy Brown’s work. Including private letters as well as poems, paintings, and sketches that have never before been on display, the collection is estimated to be worth more than 45,000 euros (over $55,000 US dollars).
- Green Mile - Guests can take a walking tour of Saint Stephen’s Green. The tour starts with a brief introduction of the Little Museum by the knowledgeable tour guide (Donal Fallon, a famous writer and local historian), followed by an hour-long tour where all of the important local history will be pointed out. See the square where James Joyce studied and the hotel where the Irish Constitution was drafted. Tours sell out quickly due to popularity but can be booked in advance online. Capacity is limited.
Be aware that the museum is not considered wheelchair accessible. Help may be available from the staff. Before leaving the museum, stop by the front desk and inquire about the City of 1000 Welcomes initiatives, which calls the museum home. Museum guests are paired with local volunteers, who will lead them through the city and buy them a cup of tea, coffee, or even a pint of beer. This is a free service and a wonderful way to take the knowledge guests will learn about Irish history out into the real streets of Dublin with someone who lives there.

Children who visit the museum will be able to take one of the available, free worksheets (which are designed for children of all different ages) while they work their way through. There are also many different fun and interactive exhibits (for instance, take a picture of a child standing at the lectern that JFK spoke at or behind a historic desk) that are designed at helping to educate the smallest visitors to the museum. When reserving a tour, make sure to tell the staff that there will be small children present. Tour guides are always more than happy to cater the tour to include facts and information relevant to children’s interests and will patiently answer as many questions as possible about the artifacts that can be found in the museum.
There is also an educational program specifically for children who visit the museum. I Love Dublin is offered free to Irish schoolchildren through the financial support of the Matheson Foundation. The program has been designed to help teach children about Dublin’s history and includes classes that are taught with a combination of the museum staff with each classes’ own teachers. Each field trip can accommodate up to 30 students at a time, who are provided with their own stationary and worksheets to help them work their way through the class. The educational programs can be booked using the museum’s handy online tool. Cancellation is required at least 24 hours in advance and, although dining at the restaurant is not a regular part of the field trip, there are a variety of local dining options as well as picnicking on the green in Saint Stephen’s square.
One other fun and engaging educational opportunity for students is the Kid’s History tour, which was designed for children between the ages of 7 and 12. The tour lasts just over an hour and was designed specifically to teach some of the more gruesome Irish history in an exciting and child friendly way. Children will learn about the Vikings, the Normans, and more. There is also a treasure hunt and a drawing competition. This tour is not always offered, so guests are encouraged to check with the front desk before visiting and reserving as far in advance as possible.
Dining and Shopping
Located in the basement of the Little Museum is Hatch and Sons, an informal restaurant with a focus on simple native Irish food. There is also a small gift shop available, with a focus on Irish history by selling merchandise like books, apparel, and toys. The museum has sought out the best local artisans and try to sell the most “quirky” collection of gift options out there.
