Nothing mentioned, nothing gained

Dublin’s Vibrant, Unmissable Indie Writing Scene

It was a pleasure to recently write a guest post for Tony and Helen Page’s Travel Signposts site, published Jan 7 2016.

DUBLIN HAS A VIBRANT LITERARY SCENE, FULL OF BOOKSHOPS, GIGS, CLASSES AND SESSIONS:

Dublin Indie literary launch

Dublin is the fourth UNESCO city of literature and hosts the International Literature Festival, the Dublin Book Festival, and a range of less publicised but no less excellent events scattered throughout the calendar. The city’s cultural heritage is even reflected in its place names: James Joyce Street, Samuel Beckett Bridge, the Bernard Shaw Pub.

But while much is made of past literary legends, most standard guidebooks don’t describe Dublin’s vibrant, modern-day literary scene, full of bookshops, gigs, classes and sessions as much a flavour of the city that made them as coddle and Guinness.

Follow this link to the Travel Signposts site to read more about uniquely Dublin bookshops, writing workshops and courses, theatre and cinema, open mics and acoustic nights, and, perhaps most important of all, where to look for the best coffee in the capital…
