Quirky/offbeat

After opening in 2011, the Little Museum of Dublin has proved its worth as one of the top tourist draws in the city. Set within in a grand townhouse on the edge of Stephen’s Green, the museum experience begins with a history lesson in the drawing room, where visitors sit on antique couches and dip into a bowl of candy. Tour guides lead you through the past 100 years in the city, from the rebellion of the Easter Rising to current day popular culture (there’s a whole room dedicated to U2). Tours are led every hour, and there’s a rotating exhibition downstairs, covering themes like costume in Irish cinema and the life of Brendan Bracken, confidante of Churchill.
