Shaw's Birthplace

information about ireland  Dublin - Ireland, Dublin

This neat terraced house is the birthplace of George Bernard Shaw, dramatist, literary critic and socialist, but probably best known for My Fair Lady, which was based on his play Pygmalion.

I could easily imagine Mrs Shaw playing the piano during one of the music evening held regularly. The house is quite small and gives a wonderful insight in everyday Victorian life. The rooms on view are the kitchen, the maid's room, the nursery, the drawing room, and the bedrooms. The house is a 15-minute walk from St. Stephen's Green and close to Grand Canal, alternatively take bus 16, 16A, 19, 19A, 122 from the city centre.

The house is open on weekdays from 10 am – 5 pm (closed between 1pm – 2pm). Saturday and Sunday 2 pm – 5 pm. The museum is closed on Wednesday and from October to April.

Admission €6 adults, €5 seniors and students, €3.50 children, €17 families. Discounted combination ticket with Dublin Writers Museum and James Joyce Museum available
