Attraction Information

At the Dublin Writers Museum Dublin's literary celebrities from the past three hundred years are brought to life through their books, letters, portraits and personal items.

Whatever you think you know about Irish literature, you're sure to find something to astound and delight you at the Dublin Writers Museum.

The building, a restored Georgian mansion on Parnell Square, is a treasure in itself. The sumptuous plasterwork in the first floor Gallery of Writers is worth a visit alone.

Temporary exhibitions, lunchtime theatre, and a specialist bookshop make this compact and informative Museum all the more appealing.

Dublin Writers Museum is one of the only Museums in the city in which you can experience the collection by digital audio guide. You can pause the audio tour as often as you like so it can last from 40 minutes to the entire day.
