  • I personally didn't think wow or super interesting probably because I'm not the biggest fan of literature, of course I do, but I don't know much. In my opinion the Museum is small and a little repetitive. For those who live and want to deepen the theme, after all we are talking about Dublin!, go to meet and stuff, but for tourists who have less than 1 week and are not super passionate about the subject, I recommend you to meet another attraction.

  • 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.

  • Awesome place for budding writers
  • Amazing experience for who loves books like me
