'Unforgettable . . . no better compilers could have been found' - History Today
'Dublin's past comes dazzlingly alive' - Publishing News
'Erudite and practical simultaneously' - Gemma Hussey, Irish Independent

Dublin's turbulent history, its intensely literary and theatrical character of long literary lineage, its revolutionary ideals and heroes, and its ordinary life are all brought to life in this collection of letters, diaries and memoirs of travellers to the city and by Dubliners themselves.

The extracts, from medieval times onwards, include Red Hugh O'Donnell's escape from Dublin Castle, James Joyce's plans for a novel while staying at the Martello Tower, and the seizure of the GPO by Irish volunteers during the Easter Rising.

The book also includes gossip and story-telling in the humorous sketches of many famous Dubliners.
