Dublin is famous as a city of writers and literature, and the Dublin Writer’s Museum is an essential visit for anyone who wants to discover, explore, or simply enjoy Dublin’s immense literary heritage.

At the Writer’s Museum, Dublin’s literary celebrities from the past three hundred years are brought to life through their books, letters, portraits and personal items.

Whatever you think you know about Irish literature, you’re sure to find something to astound and delight you here. Did you know, for example, that Oscar Wilde was a promising pugilist during his days at Trinity College, and that Samuel Beckett, had he not turned out to be one of the most influential writers of the twentieth century, would also have made a name for himself in the TCD cricket first eleven ?

The building, a restored Georgian mansion on Parnell Square, is a treasure in itself. The sumptuous plasterwork in the first floor Gallery of Writers is worth a visit alone.

Temporary exhibitions and lunchtime theatre, a specialist bookshop, and a café make this compact and informative Museum all the more appealing to anyone interested in discovering more about Dublin’s immense literary heritage.

In addition, there is currently a great offer available through City Deals: two Audio Tour Adult Tickets for €6, which you can access by going to: http://www.groupon.ie/deals/dublin-special/dublin-writers-museum/1013504?nlp=&CID=IE_CRM_1_0_0_276&a=1768
