Sure, you fall in love with Paris through the literature about the city—Hemingway immortalized Paris, F. Scott Fitzgerald spent time there and so did James Joyce. However you can do the same with Ireland.
JJ is still beloved in his native Ireland and, along with many other Irish writers, you can learn all about him at the Dublin Writers Museum. Other than Joyce, there are Oscar Wilde, Bram Stoker, and many more. If you make it to Dublin and you don't stop by here (and visit the other literary places), you have wasted a trip!
