Brand new and beautiful, the Museum of Literature Ireland (MoLI) is a brand new museum in Dublin, which aims to pay tribute to Ireland’s enormous literary heritage. Housed in the Newman House near Dublin’s St Stephen’s Green Park, it aims to celebrate Ireland’s greatest names! James Joyce, Oscar Wilde, Samuel Beckett, George Bernard Shaw… Welcome to the new Temple of Ireland’s Great Writers!
Open since 21 September 2019, this literary museum is the fruit of a collaboration between University College Dublin (UCD) and the National Library of Ireland. The objective: to exhibit literary archives, official manuscripts, pay tribute to the great Irish writers, offer exhibitions, writing workshops (for children and adults), public readings, discussion sessions around a work, debates, analyses, criticisms…etc.
A true temple for lovers of literature! A unique place with a cultural, educational and playful vocation. It is the largest museum in Dublin on the subject!
You will learn not only about the history of Irish literary artists, but also how it has impacted their work. A way to complete your discovery of a book!
Note that the MoLI will exhibit the much awaited first manuscript of Ulysses by James Joyce, as well as his notebooks. These are rare and coveted objects, which the museum is eager to reveal to the general public.
The National Library’s literary collections are among the country’s greatest treasures and we are committed to opening them to the world,” said Sandra Collins, Director of the NLI
The establishment also has a shop and a coffee corner: ideal to extend the visit, relax, bring back a souvenir, or even buy a book from one of its great authors!
