  • English literature students who have read their History of Literature books thoroughly, may not benefit much from this museum. The pros however include early copies of famous works displayed here and the paintings of rare painters. The audio guide is a great help. The the curator is a jolly person with a good sense of humour.
  • Interested in Irish authors and poets? Then the Dublin Writers Museum is worth a stop. Many exhibits and the audio tour is included in the very reasonable ticket price. Don't miss the bookstore in the back of museum.
