This tour explores the background to Joyce’s Ulysses and Bloom’s thoughts as he crosses the city in search of something to eat in the ‘Lestrygonians’ episode. A humorous contrast of wellfed and under-fed citizens is mixed with commentary on city buildings, and the presence of police constables reminds us of the realities of Dublin as a colonial city. In these footsteps, food becomes the central issue of social, cultural and political life in Dublin in 1904. The tour starts from the James Joyce Centre and finishes at the National Museum.
