Tucked away in a quaint bar in County Wicklow lies a room filled with special editions of many of the most famous works by Irish authors. Some say that Ireland’s greatest contribution to arts and culture is its literature, and this exceptional collection certainly showcases the rich body of work created by Irish writers.

First editions of Bram Stoker’s Dracula and James Joyce’s Ulysses (still in its original wrapping) are some of the crown jewels in a broad collection celebrating Irish authors, as well as poets and playwrights such as W. B. Yeats and Samuel Beckett. There’s even an original program from the world premiere of Oscar’s Wilde’s play The Importance of Being Earnest.

The room can be booked for parties of up to 80, but it is usually set up as a typical restaurant dining room. A small bar featuring a large variety of Irish whiskeys is nestled in one of its corners.

The restaurant is a five-minute drive from Glendalough monastic site, founded by St. Kevin.
