David Halpin has been discussing James Joyce's magnificent novel every week since Bloomsday 2016. This acclaimed walking tour begins in one of the city’s most treasured literary pubs - The Palace Bar - and aims to unravel a puzzle and an enigma: why is Ulysses considered one of the greatest novels in world literature? And why is it considered so difficult to read? Starting with a sit-down introduction, the tour develops into a relaxed stroll through south Dublin exploring Joyce’s book and its relationship to the city that is written in his heart. Along the way expect to visit some famous landmarks and impressive artworks, and delight in hearing music, readings, and stories from Joyce’s life and work. If you have read the novel you will relish the experience of having it sharpened into focus by a big fan, and if you have not, this three-hour interactive experience is the perfect introduction.
Tour takes place every day from 12 - 17 June, beginning at 2pm at the Palace Bar, Fleet Street. Booking recommended.
