Dublin Writers Museum was opened in November 1991 in the original 18th century building. A journalist and author Maurice Gorham proposed to open Writers Museum to Dublin Tourism to promote interest, through its collection, displays and activities, in Irish literature as a whole and in the lives and works of Irish writers. The writers featured in the Museum are all made an important contribution to Irish literature, to International literature, or to the literature of Dublin. It is a view of Irish literature from a Dublin perspective. The writers museum aims to be a place where people can come from Dublin, Ireland and abroad to experience the phenomenon of Irish writing both as history and as actuality.
Dublin Writers Museum is located near the North end of O’Connell Street.
