The Dublin Writers Museum, along with its library, is set in a gorgeous 18th century mansion. Opened in November 1991, its aim was to promote interest in Irish literature through exhibitions and workshops. The writers featured here are those who were important in history as well as the present. Also in the museum are original portraits of writers by artists such as Reginald Gray, Edward McGuire and Harry Kernoff. Some of the writers who are talked about in the museums are James Joyce, William Butler Yeats, Patrick Pearse and more – the lives of these writers are presented through personal items, books, letters and more.
Coming to the museum should be a must for anyone visiting Dublin as you will get an insight of the literary importance and the impact it has on the city, both in the past and present.
Tours are available in English, German, French, Dutch, Italian and Spanish.
