Literary Dublin
Literary Dublin

You’ll spend a few hours with one of our local Dublin hosts, walking the streets that were once home to many of the world’s great authors to the likes of Samuel Beckett, James Joyce, and Oscar Wilde. 

Visit The National Library or Trinity College to brush up on your literature knowledge and see the Book of Kells.

Or maybe you see yourself more settling in for a pint in the pub where Oscar Wilde enjoyed a tipple or two - it might just inspire you.

If the early Enlightenment is your thing, you could check out the 25000 rare volumes of the Marsh’s Library - no pressure to get through them all though.

The streets are abuzz with stories about the literary history of Dublin, so you’ll definitely hear a tale or two along the way.

    • Walk through the streets of Dublin with a literature-loving host, and hear about the authors who used to call the city home
