Dublin has long been known for the world famous writers that have walked its streets, haunted its pubs, and lived in the nooks and crannies of the city. Anyone who wants to celebrate, discover, and enjoy the literary history of Dublin must make time to tour the Dublin Writers Museum. Housed in a restored Georgian mansion in Parnell Square, the design of the building alone is enough reason to visit. The notable plasterwork in the first floor gallery of writers attracts almost as many visitors who are interested in design as the museum attracts those with an interest in literature.
The Dublin Writers Museum was established to promote interest, through its collection, displays and activities, in Irish literature as a whole and in the lives and works of individual Irish writers. All of the writers featured in the Dublin Writers Museum are those who have made an important contribution to Irish or international literature or to the literature of Dublin. The museum strives to give a view of Irish literature from a Dublin perspective. Visitors to the Irish Writers Museum are allowed to view several of the personal possessions of Dublin's most famous writers and can take in several magnificent portraits of these literary giants.
