What does it mean to be Irish? Many famous Irish characters have attempted to define 'Irishness' or indeed establish if it exists at all! The Irish Literary revival was key in defining Irish identity against the legacy of colonial rule and has had a lasting influence on our creative thinking. Join us for this private Dublin literary tour and learn how some of the most loved and celebrated Irish literary thinkers embraced and determined the cultural identity of Dublin & Ireland through their famous characters and works, hear hilarious anecdotes & stories about their lives, and explore areas such as Merrion Square, impressive Baggot street, Georgian Dublin & the beautiful canal bank walk. The literary tour is a perfect option for groups of any size, couples or individuals and we can even provide free collection at your accommodation or desired meeting point where possible – Just click on the contact button.
