Ireland Literary Scavenger Hunt

To set the mood for my upcoming travels, I've been researching Irish literary figures.  I've decided to make it sort of a game for myself, seeing as many places as possible that are connected to Irish literature.  So far, I have eight authors on my list:

Jonathan Swift, George Bernard Shaw, Samuel Beckett, John M. Synge, W. B. Yeats, Bram Stoker, Oscar Wilde and, of course, James Joyce.  (Bonus points to anyone who can figure out who's who in the pictures above.)

Before the trip I plan to download a bunch of books to my Kindle, all with an Ireland theme to be my reading for the trip.  These will include works by the above authors, as well as Celtic fairy tales and legends.

Any other authors I should add to my list?  Suggestions welcome!

My hubby and I are hoping to get to Ireland for our anniversary in October. I'd love to hear about any hints and tips about what to see and do, or not to do!

Also, I enjoyed Juliett Mariller's Sevenwaters series beginning with Daughter of the Forest.
