Dublin Literary Tour
Explore Dublin's influence on Joyce,Beckett, Swift and Wilde, plus many others
UNESCO City of Literature, Dublin is associated with four Nobel Prize winners, one of whom is the only person to also win and Oscar. Writing is a part of the fabric of the city and Dublin has had a huge influence beyond Ireland due to this rich literary tradition. No visit to Dublin is complete without exploring this literary heritage and getting to know the writers that created it.
The storytelling tradition has been strong in Ireland from the days of the ancient Celts, with the Irish tendency to talk and tell stories for hours on end, it’s no wonder this wonderful oral tradition has transferred onto paper, screen and stage.
On this 2.5 hour tour we visit the sights associated with the most famous Dublin writers. From the Abbey Theatre, founded by W.B. Yeats, past the Samuel Beckett Theatre, and in the footsteps of Leopold Bloom from Joyce's 'Ulysses', we arrive at the home and iconic statue of Oscar Wilde and connect the city with these famous authors.
