Street Poetry

Walking Tour

25 April 2024 at 1pm

Get your walking shoes on and join the James Joyce Centre and Poetry Ireland/Éigse Éireann on Thursday, 25 April 2024 for a lunchtime ‘poetry promenade’ for Poetry Day Ireland 2024 as we celebrate the extraordinary creativity of the poets who lived, worked and studied in the Georgian Streets of Dublin’s North Inner. Starting at the James Joyce Centre, our guide along with actors and poets will perform a selection of poetry at different stops along the short route. We will hear the poets of North Great George’s Street such as Samuel Ferguson, and Olivia Owenson, Belvedere College students such as James Joyce, Donagh McDonagh, and Austin Clarke, and the new poetry of contemporary poets at the Poetry Ireland House on Parnell Square.

This poetry walk will take about 45 minutes, finishing with a cup of tea and chat back at the James Joyce Centre.
