Dublin Writers Museum

Address: 18 Parnell Square, Dublin 1

Just north of the city centre, in a magnificent 18th century mansion, resides an exhibition of the lives and works of Dublin’s literary celebrities from the past 300 years. The splendidly restored Georgian house is a pleasure in itself with its sumptuous plasterwork and decorative stained glass windows.

The Dublin Writers Museum holds exhibitions and readings and has a special room devoted to children’s literature, and is essential for anyone who wants to discover, explore or simply enjoy Dublin’s immense literary heritage.

Dublin Writers Museum is one of the only museums in the city in which visitors can experience the collection by digital audio guide. They can stop the audio tour as often as they like so their stay can last from 40 minutes to the entire day!
