Lunchtime lecture: ‘Tourism in Dublin: a visit to an ever-changing city’

Wednesday 20 June, 1.05-1.35pm
Speaker: Maeve Casserly, NLI

What were the top 10 tourist attractions in Dublin in 1891? Where was the trendiest hotel to stay and which was the best pub to get yourself a ‘pint of plain’? Once seen as the ‘second city in the Empire’, how did Dublin market itself after independence? Join NLI staff member and historian Maeve Casserly for this lunchtime lecture using guidebooks from the National Library's collections to show how the tourism industry in Ireland changed between the 1890s and 1960s.

All welcome, no booking required
