The James Joyce Centre is pleased to offer two walking tours: ‘Introducing Joyce’s Dublin’ and ‘Footsteps of Leopold Bloom’.
‘Introducing Joyce’s Dublin’ takes you through North Central Dublin, where much of Joyce’s work is set. It is a historic and bustling part of the city that Joyce’s was intimately familiar with. Our guide will take you to such places as Belvedere College, St. George’s Church, Hardwicke Street, 7 Eccles Street, the Parnell Monument, and the Joyce Statue.
‘Footsteps of Leopold Bloom’ retraces Bloom’s exact route in the ‘Lestrygonians’ episode of Ulysses. Our guide will explain Bloom’s various observations about life, the city, and the theme of the episode: food! Famous stops include O’Connell Bridge, Trinity College, the Bank of Ireland, Grafton Street, Davy Byrnes, and the National Museum.
