The Dublin Writers Museum is a favorite literary landmark of Ellen Barone, host of today’s Travel Bloggers’ Caravan site-of-the-day, EllenBarone.com, a site that keeps globetrotters up to date on the latest travel news.
“Housed in the former Jameson Whiskey family home, an elegantly restored eighteenth century Georgian mansion, the museum is a convenient five minutes walk from the City Centre and Temple Bar,” says Ellen. “Great for a rainy day, bookworms can spend an absorbing afternoon browsing exhibits featuring the books, letters, portraits and personal items of Swift, Shaw, Wilde, Yeats, Joyce, Beckett, and more.”
Don’t miss the unique opportunity to listen to one of only two recordings ever made of James Joyce’s voice, which features him reading from Finnegan’s Wake. After leaving the Dublin Writers Museum, stop by the James Joyce Centre, about two blocks away.
