Dublin Writers Museum Reviews
English literature students who have read their History of Literature books thoroughly, may not benefit much from this museum. The pros however include early copies of famous works displayed here and the paintings of rare painters. The audio guide is a great help. The the curator is a jolly person with a good sense of humour.
Turned up today at opening time. They were closed. Their security staff had not bothered to turn up. Told to return at half past. I did. Staff told me to go away, in a manner that was very unfriendly and rude. As if I were a hindrance, coming to see the museum. Gave one star, as it might be a nice museum. Staff don't care enough to turn up so I didn't see the inside.
