Maeve Binchy


One of Ireland’s best loved authors of romantic fiction.


Think Chris O’Donnell (minus the bat suit or more recently in a cameo in Gray’s Anatomy) and Minnie Driver  in Circle of Friends along the river bank in Inistioge in Kilkenny or that Lilac Bus meandering back up to the metropolis of Dubln


For over 30 years Maeve created stories to amuse and entertain the masses from her earlier base in London to her home in Dalkey, on the southside of Dublin.


Having earned her place as one of Ireland and Britain’s most popular writers, as well as a  mention on the New York Times’ Bestseller List, before chick lit was even a chick Maeve Binchys novels remain popular with audiences all over the world. Sigh.


Hotels near Dalkey include Radisson Blu St Helens Hotel and further afield near Inistioge at Mount Juliet-resort
