Dublin Writers Museum
The Irish literary tradition is one of the most illustrious in the world, famous for four Nobel prize winners and for many other writers of international renown. In 1991 the Dublin Writers Museum was opened to house a history and celebration of literary Dublin.
Situated in a magnificent eighteenth century mansion in the north city centre, the collection features the lives and works of Dublin’s literary celebrities over the past three hundred years. Swift and Sheridan, Shaw and Wilde, Yeats, Joyce and Beckett are among those presented through their books, letters, portraits and personal items. The splendidly restored Georgian house is a pleasure in itself with its sumptuous plasterwork and decorative stained glass windows.
The museum holds exhibitions, readings and lunchtime performances and has a special room devoted to children’s literature, while our modern lecture rooms meet the demands of the conference planner. Dublin is famous as a city of writers and literature, and the Dublin Writers Museum is an essential visit for anyone who wants to discover, explore or simply enjoy Dublin’s immense literary heritage.
Dear Stephanie and all those who helped me plan this trip,
The 3 ladies from Pennsylvania (Elaine, Carol, and Mary) arrived home yesterday evening ... on time, in good spirits, and in good health :-)
Thanks to you, our trip went without a single hitch! The accommodations were fabulous and the service everywhere was excellent. The kindness and generosity of the Irish people has not changed since last I stepped foot in Ireland twenty four years ago! The towns have obviously enjoyed great prosperity, as we noted beautiful homes and construction everywhere we went! BUT the people are as warm and friendly as ever!
The country roads are as narrow and winding as I remembered, and everywhere the flowers were in bloom. Even the sheep in Connemara, though perhaps fewer in number, still reign over the roadways :-)
Perhaps I'll return ... I can hope. Mary and Carol send their thanks as well.
