From Beckett to Bono and James Joyce to Maeve Binchy and Emma Donoghue, some of Ireland’s most famous writers share a connection to our charming heritage town of Dalkey. Among the readings, landmarks and anecdotes, discover where characters in Flann O’Brien’s The Dalkey Archive drank Hurley’s tonic wine; the train tunnel that Joyce recalls in Portrait and where Chapter Two of Ulysses is set. Look out over the bay that George Bernard Shaw and Henry Cardinal Newman so admired. Contemporary writers include Martina Devlin, Hugh Leonard and Jennifer Johnston. The walk concludes in the Maeve Binchy Memorial Garden at Dalkey Library.
