Expert review of Dublin Writers Museum
Housed in a beautiful Georgian building, the Writers Museum is a super relaxing and awe inspiring record of Ireland's literary geniuses who have made the greatest contribution to our heritage. There are plenty of first or early editions of the classics on site, from Gulliver's Travels to Dracula, The Importance of Being Earnest, Ulysses and Waiting for Godot. There's also a first edition of Patrick Kavanagh's 'The Great Hunger' with a stanza written by the poet himself that the prudish publisher declined to print. There are original portraits, and curious personal possessions of writers such as pens and typewriters - even Brendan Behan's union card, complete with fingerprints. A fascinating treasure trove of literatures and a must visit for wordsmiths. Then take yourself downstairs and indulge in the wonderful Chapter One restaurant in the basement.
Adults 7.50 euros, concessions 6.30euros, kids 4.70euros, family(2 Adults & 3 kids under 12)18euros. There are combined tickets available with either the James Joyce Museum and The Shaw Birthplace, and Malahide Castle. Ask for group concessions (groups over 20 people) and family tickets. Guided tours also available.
