The Colleen Bawn Tour
Kerry Writers' Museum
Kerry Writers' Museum/Listowel Tourist Office, Co. Kerry
25 August, 9:30am - 5pm
Take a tour of the Royal Irish Academy and learn about the dedicated collectors of past times.
These tours will walk you through the Georgian rooms of Academy House and its nineteenth-century Reading Room and Meeting Room. You will learn about some of the bibliophiles and scholars who spent their time collecting books and manuscripts, which are now part of the Library’s collections. Was it pure research, a Victorian pastime or a bibliophile’s obsession?
