"Lambert Nugent first saw my grandmother Ada Merriman in a hotel foyer in 1925'"

The hotel Lamb Nugent saw Ada in was the Belvedere Hotel in Great Denmark Street five minutes walk from Dublin's main thoroughfare of O'Connell Street. The hotel is set in an 18th century Georgian house in a very historic part of the city which has many literary links. The Irish Writers' Museum and Centre are nearby as is the James Joyce Centre, the Garden of Rememberance with its magnificent scupture of the Children of Lir, the Gate Theatre and many of the streets mentioned in Joyce's 'Ulysses'.
