The Little Museum of Dublin
The Little Museum of Dublin opened its doors in October 2011. The museum is spaced out on 2 floors of a Georgian house. It recalls what Dublin was all about during the 20th century and our exhibition has been widely praised in the international media.
The Little Museum of Dublin tells the story of Dublin city from 1900 up to 2000 and showcases the remarkable transformation that the city went through in the last century. Visitors to the museum will witness the violent birth of the Irish nation, the conservative years that followed the false economic hope of the 1960s and the Celtic Tiger boom of the 1990s. Photographs, art and newspapers are some of the artefacts that tell the story of the city along with the influence of politics and power.

Sleighbells are ringing, carolers are singing and Harry is waiting... for someone, anyone to get in touch. An old lover calling for a drink, a friend to show up. But as the big day comes, he faces into turkey for one.
Berkoff applies his unique brand of savage humour to our favourite holiday, exposing the enforced camaraderie and particular loneliness it brings.

THE HAPPY PRINCE
by Oscar Wilde
Performed by Michael James Ford
LIVE Music composed and performed by Trevor Knight
Directed by Bairbre Ni Chaoimh.
Designed by Jack Kirwan
Michael James Ford’s acclaimed performance of The Happy Prince comes to The Little Museum for a special Christmas run. The show has enjoyed several sell-out outings in Bewley’s Café Theatre and has travelled widely in Ireland and overseas. He is joined on stage by the pianist and composer, Trevor Knight, who performs his own haunting and evocative musical score.
The Happy Prince is perhaps the best loved and most enduringly popular of all Oscar Wilde’s stories. It is the bittersweet tale of a gregarious swallow who befriends a melancholy statue while en route to Egypt. The bird helps the Prince to alleviate the suffering of his poor citizens and in doing so learns profound truths about the nature of love and suffering.
