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.
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.
It should amalgamate with The James Joyce Centre as while the building is an elegant example of its time, the contents are sparse and border on amateur. Clearly they do not own enough manuscripts and original material to warrant the museum’s title. The cheerless front desk doesn’t help as they relieve you of your entry fee. Disappointing given my expectation on what it could have been. I’d bypass this place and head straight to the Francis Bacon exhibit in the gallery next door.
