This museum was a disappointment because there were too many exhibits crowded into small spaces, the poor lighting made the explanatory texts difficult to read, the audio helping aids were a distraction, and I wanted more about living Irish authors and literary culture. They should...More

Ireland has 4 Nobel Prize Winning Authors, you think they’d wanna showcase their work more nicely. The front desk man was also very rude. Still, good stuff and audio tour was interesting.

Beautiful building. Even though I am not well versed on Irish authors it was still interesting to read up on them because many of the authors pop back up all over Ireland, no matter where you venture to so it was good to learn a...More

My 15yo chose this as a "must see" and was very happy. The free audio guide definitely added to the written info with the displays.

I think this museum would be better closed and reorganized. The building need a reconditionation and the different writer's stuff and audio guide explanations sometimes are absolutely boring. I've visited other countries writer's museums and their are much better them this one. Moreover, I can't...More

Because of my interest in the written word we took a trip to the Writers Museum as part of the Dublin Pass. I was impressed that their audio tour is free as many attractions cash in on this facility. The exhibits are well set out....More

The Dublin Writer's Museum is a very interesting place to visit - telling the story of several Irish writers and including many facts we hadn't known before. It's not very large and wo't take all day to see but it's definitely worthwhile.

As a huge Wilde and Stoker fan, I was very pleased to have come here at last and a personal highlight were the busts of Wilde and Frank McCourt - the art gallery 3 doors down is also worth seeing
