All reviews irish literature audio guide james joyce chronological order oscar wilde hugh lane gallery treasure trove bram stoker worth a visit rich history entrance fee two hours author literary books information exhibits
This is a great place to visit when you are on O'Connell Street in Dublin and you have a few hours to spend. Its at the top near Parnell Square and its a great way to really get to know who the great Irish Writers...More
I'm an English nerd, so I knew I'd like the place. It was great, and the audioguide was very helpful. It's not a large museum, so bear that in mind when deciding to pay the entrance fee. But very any other bookworms out there, well...More
Though the website stated this museum was open, we found it necessary to return a fourth time to actually enter an open door. Frankly, we could as easily have passed on it. While the photographs and busts compiled provide a unique collection, all the information...More
This museum is very interesting and entertaining. HOWEVER, I paid a full price entry d they did not inform me that the exhibition rooms were full. I did the entire museum in an hour and did not get to see the exhibition rooms.
It was a pleasure to visit this quiet little museum, where you can browse the exhibits in peace - it has the air of a place not too many people know about. It provides a good overview of Irish literature and its various historical phases,...More
For a small museum tucked away in Dublin, the amount of information and artifacts in this place is INCREDIBLE. I had allotted just two hours and found myself rushing through by the end - I'll definitely be back! They go beyond Joyce and Yeats to...More
I was so looking forward to visiting here as I studied Scottish and Irish literature at university. However, there really is not a lot to it. Displays are disappointing and uninspiring. There is a wealth of talent in Irish writing and it deserves to be...More
The Dublin Writer's Museum was a great find. An interesting audio guide leads you along the lives of several generations of Irish writers. Their lives give some context to their written work. Veru engaging. Much better than the Joyce Museum a few blocks away
This is an understated treasure trove. Ultra reasonable admission, and simply beautifully put together. Marvelously curated, marvelous notes, a stunning backdrop of the Georgian mansion. A really strikingly comprehensive narrative of the arc of Irish writing, from the earliest days to the present, and a...More
Yes €7.50 is the adult price you get a audio guide which talks a lot

Dublin on a Sunday (10 Replies)
My husband & I will have only one full day, Sunday, September 13, to explore Dublin before heading for the airport early Monday morning. We will arrive mid afternoon on Sat. Sept. 12. Staying at the Shelbourne and want to make best use of what little time we have. I know there will be Sunday closings and limited opening times. Need advice on how to get in the following without spending needless time backtracking: St Patrick's and Christ Church Cathedrals Trinity College (Book of...More

Is this your proposed itinerary for one day ? It's an awful lot. The Bank of Ireland won't be open on Saturday or Sunday. The National Gallery won't open until 12pm and the Chester Beatty until 2pm. The Writers' Museum opens at 11am. Christchurch and St. Patrick's will be busy with services on Sunday morning (Protestant/Church of Ireland services which you would be very welcome to attend) so if you don't want to attend the services you'll have to factor in your visit at another time. ...More
