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 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.

This tour is now Sold Out, please have a look over the rest of the programme to discover an alternative tour to book!
