  • This museum is very informative and well-organized. The artifacts alone are worth the trip.
  • Great museum if you would like to learn something about the history of Dubliner writers.
  • Nice museum if you are interested on the Irish writer's history, but doesn't worth the 7,50 euro they charge you.
  • Awesome place for budding writers
  • Amazing experience for who loves books like me
