This contribution reflects on the ways in which Irishness is enacted and conveyed in recent literary articulations of multiculturality. In this essay on contemporary Irish poets Derek Mahon, Sinéad Morrissey, Mary O'Donnell, and Seamus Heaney, the author focuses on the ways in which clichéd versions of identity are projected in relation to tourism in Ireland. Their poems on tourism can be studied comparatively with other more explicit literary discussions of immigration, as they also reveal interesting cross-cultural views and prejudices in the encounter between the Irish host and the foreign Other.
