Joycean Pub Crawl (11 June)

  • James Joyce Centre 35 North Great George's Street Dublin, County Dublin Ireland (map)

Dublin is renowned for its pub culture and, fittingly, Joyce captured a little bit of that culture in the pages of Ulysses. Some of the most important scenes in the novel take place in public houses, whether it’s the famous lunch enjoyed by Bloom in Davy Byrne’s, the musical interlude in the bar of the old Ormond Hotel in the ‘Sirens’ episode or the run-in with the nationalistic Citizen in Barney Kiernan’s of Little Britain Street. So what better way to discuss Joyce than over a few pints of plain?

Join our guide on a tour to some of Dublin's best-loved pubs and learn all about the life and times of the author in the establishments that inspired his work. You'll take in bars like the Gresham Hotel, Mulligan's and of course Davy Byrne's, where Leopold Bloom takes his lunch with a tipple. You’ll have fun, make friends, learn something and most likely forget it again before morning!
