March 5th, 2018 will mark one year since I jet-setted off on a trip to Ireland, to research for my first crime novel, Sins of the Son.
It is also the month of St. Patrick’s Day, which I was lucky enough to spend IN Ireland in 2017!
To mark this memory and the completion of a writing goal years in the making, I have decided to share a photo a day for the entire month of March.
Day #1: Dublin Writers Museum
The Irish literary tradition is one of the most illustrious in the world, famous for four Nobel Prize winners and for many other writers of international renown.
Photography and video are not permitted inside the museum, which makes for a very unique experience, where you are encouraged to be present and truly engage.
Situated in a magnificent 18th century mansion in the north city centre, the collection features the lives and works of Dublin’s literary celebrities over the past three hundred years.
Swift and Sheridan, Shaw and Wilde, Yeats, Joyce and Beckett are among those presented through their books, letters, portraits and personal items.
The museum holds exhibitions, lunchtime theatre and readings and has a special room devoted to children’s literature. The Dublin Writers Museum is an essential visit for anyone who wants to discover, explore or simply enjoy Dublin’s immense literary heritage.
