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 The place is outdated and old.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!

Very informative museum. Only consists of three rooms though. We arrived at 12 and were told at 12.59 that they were closing in a few minutes but not on arrival! We had virtually finished looking around but was disappointed we might not have seen everything...More

This museum was a disappointment because there were too many exhibits crowded into small spaces, the poor lighting made the explanatory texts difficult to read, the audio helping aids were a distraction, and I wanted more about living Irish authors and literary culture. They should...More

My 15yo chose this as a "must see" and was very happy. The free audio guide definitely added to the written info with the displays.

I think this museum would be better closed and reorganized. The building need a reconditionation and the different writer's stuff and audio guide explanations sometimes are absolutely boring. I've visited other countries writer's museums and their are much better them this one. Moreover, I can't...More

As a writer myself, I had to pay a visit to Dublin Writers Museum. It is a treasure trove of famous Irish writers' memorabilia, from personal belongings to books first editions (for example Bram Stokers' Dracula) and theatre programmes (for example Oscar Wilde's). I recommend...More

Because of my interest in the written word we took a trip to the Writers Museum as part of the Dublin Pass. I was impressed that their audio tour is free as many attractions cash in on this facility. The exhibits are well set out....More
