Though sometimes overshadowed by the more celebrated Irish authors, George Bernard Shaw was a Nobel prize winner and the noted author of many plays, including Pygmalion. He was born and spent his early years in this house. He remained in the house until his parents finally separated and his mother took him to England. Although little of the Shaws' personal effects are on view, the somber mood of a Victorian family in trouble is conveyed rather effectively. For literature enthusiasts, a visit here should be an informative part of your Irish itinerary.
