WICKLOW HEATHER Irish Writers Room

Tucked away in the corner of our restaurant lies a room filled with special editions of many of the most famous works by Irish authors. Some say that Ireland’s greatest contribution to arts and culture is its literature, and our exceptional collection certainly showcases the rich body of work created by Irish writers.

First editions of Bram Stoker’s Dracula and James Joyce’s Ulysses (still in its original wrapping) are some of the crown jewels in a broad collection celebrating Irish authors, as well as poets and playwrights such as W. B. Yeats and Samuel Beckett. We even have an original program from the world premiere of Oscar’s Wilde’s play The Importance of Being Earnest.

Looking to have a party in one of the most unique rooms in Ireland? The room can be booked for parties of up to 80.
