Making the journey from Dublin to the Cliffs of Moher can be quite the challenge without shelling out the cash to rent a car. This guided tour makes it easy to affordably travel to the cliffs, as well as other hot spots in Country Clare, including Doolin, Burren National Park, and Galway.

Visited the museum recently - it’s in a beautiful building on Stephens green & its a super little museum. Somewhere cool to go to learn about Ireland’s literary history. I’d previously bought tour tickets for friends who enjoyed the experience followed by lunch in the excellent Commons cafe ( located in the basement of the museum). Lovely gift shop to visit afterwards. Tip : Recommend you doing this museum visit and take in the Commons restaurant on the same trip.

Well myself and my sister had our first visit to this beautiful building and museum yesterday. The entrance is very inviting and the staff could not have been nicer . It was a self guided tour and they have really thought out the space really well and included everything you can think of in a very simple and easy way to see and lots of relaxing spots . The staff were very informative especially John and Stephanie! I loved the outside space , the garden is beautiful. I highly recommend this place to visit ????

I really enjoyed my visit to MoLI, they have done a wonderful job in creating such a vibrant, elegant new museum following extensive renovations of the three buildings along St Stephen's Green. There are exhibits featuring many, many Irish writers but there is a heavy leaning towards James Joyce. I loved the model of Dublin with many of the settings in Ulysses labelled. The story of Joyce and some of the landmarks of his life are detailed chronologically on storyboards along the wall. Upstairs pride of place is the very first copy of Ulysses iwith its cerulean blue cover and rough cut pages. Joyce's own copy is there too complete with his notes and sketches. Matisse illustrations for Ulysses are also here as well as some of Joyce's letters, most notably one to Yeats asking him for help in getting Dubliners published! My visit was really added to by the excellent roving hisrorian/ guide Stephanie who was just a mine of information. She was so interesting and her obvious love for Joyce and for literature in general really added to my enjoyment of the museum. She was just brilliant. I loved the room full of quotes where you can tear off a copy for yourself from a pad and take it with you - ideal for bookmarks. There are a few films playing that you can sit and watch. Make sure to see the gardens out the back, they are really lovely and there is a cafe with a terrace called The Commons, an ideal place to sit out in.

I studied Irish Literature at TCD and to see all the Irish writers, their journeys and their inspirations was unique. The use of multimedia is also a nice touch. The building itself is really warm and welcoming! Definitely recommend this gorgeous place to all the literature lovers out there!

I had a brilliant time at the museum yesterday. The guides and staff were so kind, helpful and informative. It was so wonderful to discuss Joyce with them, I’ve started reading Ulysses today, starting with Molly Bloom’s chapter, and I’m really enjoying it. The museum is really well laid out, very clean, and there’s plenty of space to socially distance. I’m really excited to return with my friends from a creative writing group.
