by Peter Costello




Peter Costello takes you on a tour of Dublin pubs most frequented by famous Irish literary personalities, noting the sights to watch for along the way. He describes the background to pub culture, how it arose in the nineteenth century, the finer points of pub etiquette, and peculiar customs and practices. He recounts the history of the fourteen best-known pubs in Dublin and their famous clientele, including James Joyce, James Stephens, W.B. Yeats, Oliver St J. Gogarty, Brendan Behan, Anthony Cronin, Myles na Gopaleen, Patrick Campbell, and many others. Fully illustrated, this elegant little book also includes many contemporary descriptions and quotations. Based on the hugely popular Jameson Dublin Pub Crawl, Dublin?s Literary Pubs is a fabulous guide to the pubs that have played a special part in Irish life and writing for a century and more.
