Dublin: Historical City to the bone

Dublin

My Recommendation Tip

Dublin is known for many things and has many strings to its bow, many feathers to its cap, but surely its history is right up there. For, it's a city with many contours, shades, layers, veneers, strands, tiers, deep strata, to its essence; and in this, it mirrors and reflects the history of Ireland, which is so complex, almost like a prism which radiates out in many waves and streams. Quite simply, Dublin is an historical city to the bone, and history seems to inhabit every wall, stone, nook and cranny of its streestscape.

Dublin: UNESCO City of Literature - finally!

Dublin

My Recommendation Tip

It's been a long time coming but now it's arrived: Dublin is officially the fourth UNESCO city of literature. It's only right and proper that a city that has punched above its weight should be accorded this recognition - for no other city in the world for its size or population has produced three Nobel Laureates in WB Yeats (1923), GB Shaw (1925), Samuel Beckett (1969) and arguably but for certain circumstances, another two, James Joyce and Oscar Wilde, could have scooped the garland too! Add to the melting pot, that it's also produced two of the twentieth century's finest dramatists in JM Synge and Sean O'Casey, the author of Gulliver's Travels, the author of Dracula, and a previous vampire chronicler in Sheridan Le Fanu, and you have a potent cocktail.

Yes, to mark the 25th anniversary of the premature passing of this musical icon, a treasure trove of memorabilia can be seen in Saint Stephen's Green Shopping Centre.

Tutankamun Comes to Dublin

Dublin

My Recommendation Tip

Ever imagined or wondered what it was like for Howard Carter who discovered the tomb and the glorious treasures of King Tut of Egypt in 1922? Imagine being able to relive that realistically like never before, as if you are actually there, as if you have travelled back in time, and have materialised in his tomb in the Nile Valley? Well, you better stop dreaming and let reality hit the fan button! Because King Tut is coming to Dublin, Ireland!
