Dublin City was designated as a UNESCO City of Literature in 2010, only the fourth city globally to receive the prestigious title. Dublin was a natural choice given its rich literary history which dates as far back as 800AD and the four Nobel prize winners that have called Dublin home - Yeats, Shaw, Beckett and Heaney.
Dublin boasts dozens of statues, libraries, museums and art galleries which display and celebrate the work of local and international authors and artists.
