Best cities for book lovers

Travelers who love reading can do better than carry a novel in their suitcase and pull it out at the beach or on the train to satisfy their literary cravings. Instead, they can plan trips according to their taste in literature and visit the sites of their favorite stories or drink in pubs where their go-to authors once conceived their fictional worlds. Whether it’s having a pint in Oxford, with the ghosts of J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, or daydreaming about Dostoevsky’s masterpieces on the ...

Life as the Guardian's Ireland reporter: my return home to a nation in flux

After two decades away, Rory Carroll reflects on going back to Dublin to cover everything from Brexit and border issues to abortion law and Game of ThronesI managed five months back in Ireland before falling into a bog.

Easter Rising 1916: 103 years ago in Dublin.

It was modeled on a similar if less well-supported proclamation by Robert Emmet in 1803. However, as one of our readers, Patrick J. Keeley, has pointed out: The proclamation in 1916 was an actual declaration of a Republic. Emmet is more known for his speech from the dock when he spoke of Ire...
