Maeve Binchy is featured on Ireland.com Literary map of Ireland Part 1: Take a journey through the stunning landscapes that Ireland’s authors, and their stories, call home.
Ever wondered where Ireland’s greatest writers get their inspiration? It’s all around them, in Ireland’s legendary landscapes.
“A little town with two magic harbours, and hills and views without equal in the land …”
Dublin’s beloved Maeve Binchy penned novels about modern-day Ireland’s small towns and big-hearted people. The gorgeous South Dublin seaside landscapes inspired some of her most famous works, including the likes of Circle of Friends (one of three of Binchy’s books adapted to film).
Fans of the prolific author should take a trip to Dalkey, and dine out in Finnegan’s pub (a favourite lunch spot of Binchy’s).
