The Little Museum of Dublin – A Treasure Chest of History
For example, we learned about how the groundskeeper for St. Stephens Green was allowed to feed the prize-winning ducks during a lull in the 1916 fighting. We also learned how Ireland was shaped by those who have lived here throughout the years.
You will be taken on a trip to meet famous figures in Irish histories such as Padraig Pearse and the famous poet W.B Yeats. The museum’s tours usually take place during the day but tickets sell out quickly so you may want to think about pre-booking.
If you’re a music type of person there is an exhibition dedicated to Ireland’s famous rock band U2. It features signed albums, photographs and a life-size MacPhisto statue too. It was curated by fans of the band as a tribute toward the band and their Irish roots.
