About Dublin Writer's Museum

  • Dublin Writer's Museum



The Irish literary tradition is one of the most illustrious in the world, famous for four Nobel Prize winners and for an abundance of other writers of international renown. In 1991 the Dublin Writers Museum was opened to house a history and celebration of literary Dublin. Situated in a magnificent eighteenth century mansion in the north city centre, the collection features the lives and works of Dublin’s literary celebrities over the past three hundred years. Swift and Sheridan, Shaw and Wilde, Yeats, Joyce and Beckett are among those presented through their books, letters, portraits and personal items.

The splendidly restored Georgian house is a pleasure in itself with its sumptuous plasterwork and decorative stained glass windows. The museum holds exhibitions and readings and has a special room devoted to children’s literature. The magnificent Gallery of Writers is an ideal setting for receptions, while our modern meeting rooms meet the demands of the conference planner.

Dublin is famous as a city of writers and literature, and the Dublin Writers Museum is an essential visit for anyone who wants to discover, explore or simply enjoy Dublin’s immense literary heritage.
