Museum of Literature Ireland (MoLI) 2 (1)
The Museum of Literature Ireland (MoLI) is a cultural institution located in Dublin, Ireland. It was established in 2019 with the aim of celebrating Ireland's rich literary heritage and promoting contemporary Irish literature.

The museum is situated in Newman House, a historic building that was once the home of the University College Dublin's (UCD) first rector, John Henry Newman. The building has been extensively renovated and now features state-of-the-art exhibition spaces, a reading room, a café, and a bookshop.

MoLI's permanent exhibition, "The Republic of Letters," explores Ireland's literary past and its impact on the world. It features interactive exhibits, rare manuscripts, and other artifacts from famous Irish writers such as James Joyce, Samuel Beckett, and W.B. Yeats.

In addition to its permanent exhibition, MoLI hosts a variety of temporary exhibitions, events, and educational programs. It also houses the UCD Irish Literature Collections, which contains over 6,000 books and other materials related to Irish literature.

MoLI is open to the public six days a week, closed on mondays, and is a must-visit destination for anyone interested in Irish literature and culture.
