[title size=”2″]Description[/title]

For a city with such a rich literary heritage, Dublin must have a museum devoted to its favourite writers and authors. So pay a visit to the Dublin Writers Museum, in an original 18th century house on Parnell Square.

It features two museum rooms showing a history of Irish literature right up to recent times, with panels describing the important names, movements and phases, and pictures to illustrate the lives of individual writers.

Further in is the Gorham Library, named for the author Maurice Gorham who envisioned the museum’s founding before his death in 1975, where the museum’s reserve of books, with many first editions and rare works, is kept. Further still, in the annexe at the back there is a coffee shop and a book store.

For lovers of literature, the Dublin Writers Museum is a treasure trove of portraits, past writer’s possessions and of course, books. From Dracula to Ulysses, the selection of Irish works is as eclectic as it is valuable. Don’t forget to look out for Samuel Beckett’s telephone or Handel’s chair from the opening night of The Messiah.

Without the generosity of its many benefactors, the Dublin Writers Museum would not be here. You can show your gratitude to these foundations and individuals by paying a visit and soaking up the wonderful world of Irish literature.
