Thank you to all who came to Culture Night at the James Joyce Centre. Experiencing the Centre at night time added to the magical atmosphere. Sinead and Darina entertained a packed house with their ‘Songs of Joyce’.
We were delighted to welcome so many of you to our house and walking tours. Some people came from just around the corner, some traveled all the way from America. Some of you brought the whole family and some even stayed with us for the whole night.
Judging by your feedback, our tour guides Conor, Niels and Dane won you over with their enthusiasm and knowledge. Somebody said they wished they had learnt like this in school, others were happy to see places they’d never visit on their own, like No 7 Eccles Street.
All in all, the night was a success and your comments gave us plenty of ideas for next year.
Autumn at the James Joyce Centre
A chill is in the air and the weather is “as uncertain as a child’s bottom”.
So, come in from the cold on Monday, 1st October, for The first Sightings of James Joyce’s Ulysses. Ed Mulhall, former Managing Director of RTE News and Current Affairs, will be opening our 2018 Autumn/Winter Lecture Series with a talk on the serialisation of James Joyce’s Ulysses in the Little Review magazine which began in March 1918. Mulhall has written on Joyce for Century Ireland, spoken on panels on Joyce and co-ordinated RTE’s production for the centenary of Bloomsday in 2004.
Please note that the James Joyce Centre will be closed on Mondays during the day starting in October and walking tours will only be available on Saturdays for the autumn/winter season.
