Walk into any classic pub in Dublin and there's one thing you won't hear: a television. This is intentional—pubs are for drinking and talking, not for staring at screens. It's this environment that has made (and continues to make) Dublin's public houses prime hubs for the literaty set. Dublin is full of literary ghosts, if you know where to look. From Davy Byrne's Pub, where James Joyce placed one of his characters eating a gorgonzola sandwich, to Toner's Pub, where Dracula scribe Bram Stoker raised a glass, here are 10 places to visit in Dublin with a long literary history.
