GEORGE BERNARD SHAW MUSEUM

 
George Bernard Shaw (26 July 1856 - 2 November 1950) was an Irish playwright. Although his first profitable writing was music and literary criticism, in which capacity he wrote many highly articulate pieces of journalism, his main talent was for drama, and he wrote more than 60 plays. Nearly all his writings deal sternly with prevailing social problems, but have a vein of comedy to make their stark themes more palatable. Shaw examined education, marriage, religion, government, health care and class privilege. The George Bernard Shaw Birthplace. It was in this house, opened to the public in 1993, that Shaw began to gather the store of characters who would later populate his books. From the drawing room where Mrs. Shaw held many musical evenings, to the front parlor and children's bedrooms, this charming residence is a wonderful insight into the everyday life of Victorian Dublin.
