7 Great Works of Literature Set in Ireland

St. Patrick’s Day is almost here. To celebrate Irish history, I’ve curated a list of 7 great works of literature set in Ireland to read this March and beyond. Be swept away to Ireland with these books that chronicle and celebrate the diversity of Irish life and culture, from the 19th century and beyond.
