Though Joyce lived most of his life outside of Ireland, Dublin would provide the backdrop for virtually all of his major work. On a stroll around the north inner city, our guide will explain the real-life inspiration behind some of Joyce's most celebrated writing and will show just how central the streetscape of the "Hibernian Metropolis" is to the author's life and art. The tour visits stops like Joyce's alma mater Belvedere College; Hardwicke Street, the setting for the short story 'The Boarding House'; the Gresham Hotel, the setting of the final and most memorable scene of the short story 'The Dead'; and the James Joyce statue on North Earl Street. The tour also includes a visit to the site of one of the most famous addresses in literature, No. 7 Eccles Street, and retraces the steps of Leopold Bloom's celebrated journey to buy a pork kidney in the fourth episode of Ulysses. This tour ends on O’Connell Street.
