I found it very interesting to learn how many influential writers were from Ireland and Dublin. Each section of the museum had in depth details. You could spend a few hours there reading the information. They also had audio guides that gave a small amount of information and background on each writer. So depending on how in depth you want the experience you could listen to each section and be done within an hour or you can stay and read each poster as well.
Lived in the city for years and didn't know this gem was here a great tribute to some of Ireland's finest writer's. The works of Wilde, Beckett, Joyce are kept here along with many more definitely worth a visit if you come to the city.
