Patrick Kavanagh, A Dublin Literary Trail
Patrick Kavanagh, A Dublin Literary Trail gives an insight into the life and work of one of Ireland’s finest poets. Patrick Kavanagh, probably more than any other poet who lived and worked in Dublin, is particularly associated with one area of Dublin. The Baggot Street / Pembroke Road area was the locality in which Patrick Kavanagh lived and worked for much of his life. This area became the source and inspiration of much of his most famous work. While there have been inevitable changes in the area over the decades since his death in 1967, the buildings and streetscape have remained much as they were in his time. Members of the public can walk the trail from the Grand Canal to Raglan Road experiencing his poetry and gaining further insights into his life and presence in the area. The area is only ten minutes walk from St Stephen’s Green.
