The Bloomsday Bus - 1:30PM

  • James Joyce Centre 35 North Great George's Street Dublin, County Dublin, D01 WK44 Ireland (map)

Hop aboard the Bloomsday Bus this 16 June for a whistle-stop Joycean sightseeing tour around Dear Dirty Dublin! You’ll be whisked around on a vintage double-decker for a two and a half hour tour of some of the city’s key Joycean landmarks in the company of our local guide and a celebrated performer of Joyce’s work, who’ll keep you informed and entertained as you explore the ‘Hibernian Metropolis’.

You’ll pop by Eccles Street, the address of Molly and Leopold Bloom; Glasnevin Cemetery, the setting for the ‘Hades’ episode of Ulysses; the old ‘Monto’ area, where Bella Cohen’s brothel once stood; Westland Row, where the ‘Lotus Eaters’ episode sees Bloom drop into Sweny’s Chemist; Holles Street Maternity Hospital, where Bloom and Stephen cavort with Mulligan et al in ‘Oxen of the Sun’ and a whole lot of other Joycean hotspots along the way, including some of the author’s former addresses and many more locations from the novel. You’ll also get a copy of Romping Through Ulysses and a free boater hat to have you looking your Bloomsday best!
