You’ll spend a few hours with one of our local Dublin hosts, walking the streets that were once home to the likes of Samuel Beckett, James Joyce and Oscar Wilde - there must be something in the water (or the wine), with so many of the world’s great authors having spent time in the eclectic city.

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.

And who knows, you might be so inspired that you’re tempted to pick up a quill and write about your memorable personalized experience of literary Dublin. (Don’t worry, we’re joking about this one).

Kevin led us on a wonderful walking tour, including a Seamus Heaney exhibit we wouldn’t have found, and added interesting history and restaurant tips for us to try later. Even showed us the best grocery stores in the city center when we told him we wanted to find picnic food...Fallon & Byrne has wonderful bread and cheese and salads, and so does Dunne’s.

A great day!

Conor was the best! He was a superb guide and driver. His local knowledge of the area made our day that much better! He showed us places and told us stories only a local would know. He made us feel at ease from the moment we met and made sure we saw as much as possible in our day together and never rushed us. I cannot recommend Conor or this tour enough! Thank you!
