Now, when a Dubliner asks you ‘What’s the story?’, they’re not expecting you to take them home, tuck them in and read them a bedtime tale. Dubliners’ lives are so laced with literature that they see everything as a story, and expect that everyone has one. The Dublin Literary Pub Crawl demonstrates this eloquently in verse and monologues on a journey of the pubs and places Dublin’s literary luminaries left their mark on. Then again, you could always put the city’s iWalk series in your ears, tramp the streets and let Dublin’s story unfold itself along the way. But be warned: we’re still telling tales. A tall-tale dinner at the Brazen Head, the Milk and Cookie Storytelling sessions or the Joyce readings at real-life Ulysses relic Sweny’s are testament to that. So what should you reply when asked ‘What’s the story?’ Trust us, the city will have one waiting for you.
