It’s only a few rooms (doesn’t quite merit 10 euros, most of the reason for 4/5 stars) but they pack a punch. Tour guide was great and gave a lot of interesting info. If you’re new to Irish history, it can be hard to navigate. It’s a lot of pop culture since all of the artifacts are donated from Dubliners.

A fantastic way to spend 3 quarters of an hour and free entry if using thr Do Dublin hop on hop off tour. You get a talk from one of the staff and takes you through a social history from mid-1850s to present day. Full of artefacts donated by the Dublin public in a wonderful Georgian house. Well worth a visit.

We went there today and were warmly welcomed. Patrick made the tour. He was very engaging and funny.Is not too long and perfect for children . Nice little snippets of history and artefacts but nothing too heavy.Thursday evening tours are free which is a bonus. No other museums were open beyond 6pm when we visited Dublin.

Enjoyed a tour of this lovely little museum. Interesting 30min tour through the the ages in just a few rooms. Each room is packed full of artifacts and quirky bits and pieces, all donated by the people of Dublin. A very nice social history of Dublin and well worth a visit.

For such a small building for a museum there is so much of Irish history memorabilia there, all of the items have been given to the museum from the Irish people. At the moment they have an exhibition called "What's She Doing here? Women at Work 1918-2018" which salutes strong women of Ireland past and present.

On the second floor, you are given a guided tour of Irish history through the years, our guide Joan( I think), was very informative and interactive with both children and adults. The tour lasts 29 minutes which is all you need with so much information that is given to you.

On the third floor, there was rooms dedicated to the band "U2", "the Irish Times" and my favorite room of all "Alfie Byrne".

The museum is very central and the tour is quick which is great if your stuck for time.
