16th June 1904 – Bloomsday, the day immortalised by James Joyce in Ulysses, and the anniversary of his first date with his future wife, Nora Barnacle.

Come join in the fun, mayhem and unique atmosphere of Dublin on Bloomsday with a walking tour of the city centre, recalling incidents and places described in Ulysses as Leopold Bloom traversed the city on that epic day.

You don’t need to be a fan of Joyce to enjoy this walking tour. But if you are, you’re certain to find new insights from the blend of information, humour, readings and dramatisations, mainly from the Laestrygonians episode of the book. Our guide will bring it all to life today as we revel in an “Oh-So- Dublin!” tradition that only happens once a year (thank goodness - we’ve been doing it every year for the last 23 years!).
