Dublin Writers Museum, Dublin Reviews - Write a Review
The Dublin Writer's Museum is great for the right audience. The Museum primarily consists of large written displays focused on various Dublin-connected writers, along with display cases containing various artifacts. The Museum is, perhaps appropriately, very reading intensive; the primary visual elements are the artifacts, and the artifacts themselves are generally just copies of books or poems with a few personal items thrown in and are in general not the most amazing things to look at, particularly if one doesn't have much personal interest in the writers themselves. So, most of the experience comes from reading the displays. The displays contain excellent overviews of both the writers in question as well as the historical events surrounding particular movements and writers' groups. Again, though, if one is not interested in the writers themselves, the museum is likely quite dull. As someone who loves writing and is interested in several Irish writers, I found the museum fantastic. For someone not interested in these things, your time is likely better spent elsewhere.
Jonathan Swift, Oscar Wilde, G. B. Shaw, James Joyce, W. B. Yeats, Samuel Beckett are the ones you know, but they're the tip of the iceberg here. Many more names that should be remembered and enough detail to let you sense the changing literary milieu over the generations. It's housed in an 18th century home that was beautifully renovated in the 1890s by George Jameson of the whiskey distillery family.
Interesting museum on literature history of Ireland. Simple and small, but a bit boring. Could be more entertaining.
Must see if youre into your irish writers.
Small but full of wonderful stories of Irish writers.
