Stuff Dublin into your coat pocket. The perfect companion for a visit
to the Fair City, or indeed to any inn, bar or café in Ireland.
Some of the greatest writers in the English language were born in Dublin and every corner of the city has links with the written word,
made explicit in this far-ranging collection. From Oscar Wilde to Rudyard Kipling, from Jonathan Swift to WB Yeats and Samuel Beckett: the city of Dublin has enchanted and
inspired some great poetry.
Latest in a growing set of romantic city-break destinations; including Paris, Rome, Istanbul, Venice and London.Dublin is a top visitor destination, especially for those of a literary bent. This is a perfect doorway into the city's heart and soul.biography of John Wyse Jackson
