For a small museum tucked away in Dublin, the amount of information and artifacts in this place is INCREDIBLE. I had allotted just two hours and found myself rushing through by the end - I'll definitely be back! They go beyond Joyce and Yeats to...More

I was so looking forward to visiting here as I studied Scottish and Irish literature at university. However, there really is not a lot to it. Displays are disappointing and uninspiring. There is a wealth of talent in Irish writing and it deserves to be...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

This is an understated treasure trove. Ultra reasonable admission, and simply beautifully put together. Marvelously curated, marvelous notes, a stunning backdrop of the Georgian mansion. A really strikingly comprehensive narrative of the arc of Irish writing, from the earliest days to the present, and a...More

Very interesting visit - lots of good information about the many wonderful writers this country has produced. Stunning rooms and architecture. Well worth a visit.

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

This is honestly one of my favourite museums! The audio guide had so much information, as well as what was already provided throughout. I learned so much about all of the writer’s history and their stories. Definitely a place to visit when in Dublin!

I definitely appreciated this literary museum, as a big fan of Irish literature. The overall set-up is pretty simple. They have cases with artifacts relevant to different Irish writers over the past few centuries, explanations about the writers above the cases, and an audio guide...More

It’s a nice museum if you want to dive in Irish literature. Especially the first two rooms are full of information! But that’s actually it. The place is outdated and old. Personnel is very friendly!
