Welcome to this week’s episode of Low Season Traveller Insider Guides brought to you in partnership with our good friends at Tourism Ireland
Today we head back over to Dublin one last time, where I spent a wonderful 3 days in the low season of January earlier this year. With clear blue skies, low crowds and plenty of things to experience and do, Dublin rarely disappoints in the winter months. And what better way to pass the time than meeting up with some wonderful people like today’s guest, Simon O’Connor who is the Director of the Museum of Literature Ireland or MoLI as it’s better known.
MoLI is a museum of literature for the world’s greatest storytellers. A tranquil oasis on St Stephen’s Green in the heart of Dublin, MoLI is where visitors from all over the world come to discover Ireland’s rich literary heritage from past to present via it’s immersive exhibitions and rare treasures from the National Library of Ireland.
And it is an utterly inspiring place which I had the pleasure of passing a few hours in before meeting up with Simon in his curator's office when we met up to find out more about Ireland’s literary past.
And if you’re interested in learning more about the Museum or indeed would like to plan a visit during your next trip to Dublin, you can learn more by visiting moli.ie.
