Ireland inspires writers

Whether you are aware or not, Ireland boasts very famous literature figures.

Who doesn’t know the mythical Dracula novel, written by Bram Stoker?

Who doesn’t know at least one quote of the free spirit poet and playwright Oscar Wilde, for whom “to define is to limit”?

 Féile Na Bealtaine DingleHiya, May Bank Holiday Weekend is coming up so fast. I looked a bit at what there was to do in Ireland so we don’t get bored.
