Opening Times

The Irish literary tradition is one of the most illustrious in the world, famous for four Nobel Prize winners and for many 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 18th 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 museum holds exhibitions, lunchtime theatre and readings and has a special room devoted to children's literature. While our lecture rooms meet the demands of the conference planner, the Dublin Writers Museum is an essential visit for anyone who wants to discover, explore or simply enjoy Dublin's immense literary heritage.

Tours available in French, German, Italian, Spanish and Dutch.
