Dr Douglas Hyde Centre : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
This centre is dedicated to Douglas Hyde (1860-1949), the first president of the Republic of Ireland (1938-1945). Unusual for one of Anglo-Irish origin, Dr Hyde was an Irish scholar and collected Irish poetry and folk tales. His aims were the preservation of Gaelic as the Irish national language and the cultivation of past and present Irish literature.
