Nice building. Interesting if you like literature because the museum is old fashioned. Situated on a nice square north of the city.

I found it very interesting to learn how many influential writers were from Ireland and Dublin. Each section of the museum had in depth details. You could spend a few hours there reading the information. They also had audio guides that gave a small amount of information and background on each writer. So depending on how in depth you want the experience you could listen to each section and be done within an hour or you can stay and read each poster as well.
This museum is definitely for the hardcore literature fans! A compact museum which celebrates Ireland’s contribution to the arts! I really loved the museum as a venue - stunning setting and possible inspirations for some of the reading rooms from the Harry Potter movie series
Lived in the city for years and didn't know this gem was here a great tribute to some of Ireland's finest writer's. The works of Wilde, Beckett, Joyce are kept here along with many more definitely worth a visit if you come to the city.
Interested in Irish authors and poets? Then the Dublin Writers Museum is worth a stop. Many exhibits and the audio tour is included in the very reasonable ticket price. Don't miss the bookstore in the back of museum.
While I enjoyed it, it is not worth the 7,50€ price of admission even though the building is beautiful and you can see some.
