Next week I'll be lucky enough to spend 48 hours in Dublin!  In honor of the occasion, what great work of Irish literature shall I read on the plane ride over the lake?  What are the top spots I should hit while in Dublin? Do you have any special Dublin friends who would enjoy a visit from a Yank?   There are so many choices it's almost overwhelming!!  I'll have a full 48 hours to explore!

Well... it isn't necessarily a "great" work of literature. And it will probably only make it on to a college syllabus if someone in the far future decides to teach a class on the very-long-genre-driven-historical-novels-of-the-twentieth-century, but I think "Trinity" by Leon Uris is riveting enough to make you forget you're sitting in an airplane for eight and a half hours.

I'd recommend Kilmainham Gaol for a reflection on Ireland's tragic history. Then lift your spirits at the Guinness Storehouse.
