It was a pleasure to visit this quiet little museum, where you can browse the exhibits in peace - it has the air of a place not too many people know about. It provides a good overview of Irish literature and its various historical phases,...More

The Dublin Writer's Museum was a great find. An interesting audio guide leads you along the lives of several generations of Irish writers. Their lives give some context to their written work. Veru engaging. Much better than the Joyce Museum a few blocks away

A really strikingly comprehensive narrative of the arc of Irish writing, from the earliest days to the present, and a...More

Two rooms of uninspiring, amateurish displays in a dirty, ramshackle building, parts of which are so rundown and dilapidated that it looks like an abandoned asylum. The fact that the “museum” doesn’t have its own website should have been a warning of what awaited me....More
