Dublin Writers Museum Tours

Dublin Writers Museum

The Dublin Writers Museum features unique works and memorabilia from famous writers heralding from this city. Letters and personal items from such icons as Oscar Wilde and Samuel Beckett allow visitors to connect with their favorite Irish authors on a more personal level while also admiring their works, which are also on display. Over 300 years of historical memorabilia and literature are displayed in this charming Georgian house-turned-museum, complete with a library, gallery and lecture rooms. There are also an adjoining bookshop and cafe as well as a basement restaurant that all follow the literary theme.

Built as a centre to honor past Irish literary figures, the museum has also become a place for young aspiring writers to gain perspective and inspiration for their own works. The headquarters for these authors, the Irish Writers' Centre, is conveniently located next door to the museum, providing them a respite to work and share ideas. The relationship between these two institutions illustrates that while Dublin has a rich history of talented writers it also has a group of bright and promising authors destined for future literary success.

Practical Info

The Dublin Writers Museum divides its large collection of literary artifacts into different exhibits. Items in Room 1 of the museum tell the story of Irish literature up until the 19th century and the beginning of the Literary Revival. Room 2's displays pay homage to the great writers of the 20th century. Travel to the top of the grand staircase and enter the Gorham Library, filled with first and rare editions. Next door to the library is the Gallery of Writers, a room decorated with busts and portraits of famous writers where special events and exhibitions are held.
