The €10.5m Museum of Literature Ireland opened its doors last month. It’s home to Copy No.1 of Ulysses, which was the first copy handed to James Joyce on February 22nd, 1922 and is inscribed to his patron, Harriet Shaw Weaver.
Besides the literary merits of the place, one of its centrepieces is the gardens which adjoin the Iveagh Gardens.
Boasting the title of the only publicly-accessible historic house garden in the city, you can sit and marvel at the splendour of this new addition, including stunning, architecturally sympathetic, copper mesh inside glass panels by architects Scott Tallon Walker.
