Hop aboard the Bloomsday Eve Bus this 15 June for a whistle-stop Joycean sightseeing tour around "Dear Dirty Dublin". You’ll be whisked around on a 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.
