DUBLIN CULTURE - DUBLIN CULTURE IRELAND

Dublin Culture - Book of KellsDublin Culture – Dublin has a famous cultural past. Trinity College, or University of Dublin, founded in 1591, has graduated authors Jonathan Swift, Oliver Goldsmith, and Oscar Wilde. Its library is home to the 8th-century 'Book of Kells', the famous decorated gospel book made by Celtic Monks.

Famous Literary Figures to emerge from the city include John Millington Synge, William Yeats, James Joyce, Samuel Beckett and George Bernard. The city played a leading role in the revival of Irish language and literature of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This included the opening of the Abbey Theatre in 1904, dedicated to the revival of Irish drama.

Pubs play a huge part in Dublin's Culture so make sure you check them out during your stay. You will always be treated as a friend and welcomed in with open arms. Make sure you pay Dublin’s oldest pub, The Brazen Head, a visit while you are in the city. The place is immersed in centuries of history. It's a collection of low rooms connected by low passages. Live music every night keeps the place buzzing.
