  • For those who like literature is a charming Museum with a fine collection of its great writers. There are paintings, books and objects of figures like Wilde, Becket, Swift, Shaw, among others, all distributed along an interesting two-storey house ...

  • Lots of memorabilias and documents. The audio guide could be better. This is a very educativ visit if you are interested by litterature. 
  • Included in the dublin pass gave this place a visit even though my knowledge of Dublin writers is limited. Self guided tour with handsets so you can listen in detail at each point.

  • 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
