Explore Dublin’s rich literary tradition

Literary pub crawl

“A good puzzle would be to cross Dublin without passing a pub”, so thought Leopold Bloom in James Joyce’s Ulysses.
It’s a very tricky thing to do, so instead why not follow in the footsteps of Ireland’s greatest writers, while enjoying a few pints along the way. Dublin Pub Crawl run nightly literary tours that avoid the tourist cliches, and have been ranked among the 50 best walks in the world by the Sunday Times.

Dublin Writers Museum

You could fill a museum with incredible Irish writers, so Dublin decided to do just that. Ireland has produced four Nobel Prize winners—WB Yeats, Samuel Beckett, Seamus Heaney and George Bernard Shaw—who are all featured here, alongside Ireland’s other literary heroes.
Experience the lunchtime theatre and stop by the children’s literary room. Tours are available in a range of European languages.

Literary walking tour

If you’re looking to get up close and personal with the Irish literary greats, take a walk around the streets where it all began.
See some of the city’s best-loved monuments, and pick up some secrets you won’t hear anywhere else. Tours run throughout Saturday and Sunday, but are available other days on request.

Abbey Theatre

The Abbey has been Ireland’s national theatre since 1904. In that time, the Abbey has fostered the careers of many leading Irish playwrights and actors, including WB Yeats, Lady Gregory, Seán O’Casey, and John Millington Synge. With Bloomsday (June 16) falling not long after MoneyConf, you can get your straw boater hat—as per Irish tradition—and catch a production of James Joyce’s Ulysses in the Abbey.
