As if we needed another reason to go to Ireland: the Emerald Isle will unveil a new literary museum this fall.
The Museum of Literature Ireland will officially open September 20, and tickets can be purchased for September 21 onward on its website.
Its abbreviated name — MoLI — pays homage to James Joyce by referencing his most famous female character, Molly Bloom.
But the museum itself will honor the country’s literary culture throughout time, from its “earliest storytelling traditions to (its) celebrated contemporary writers,” according to the Irish Times.
MoLI is located in Dublin’s UCD Newman House, where writers such as Joyce and Maeve Binchy studied and where poet Gerard Manley Hopkins lived for some time.
