The Dublin Ulysses Tour (11 - 18 June)

  • The Palace Bar 21 Fleet Street Dublin, County Dublin Ireland (map)

David Halpin has been explaining the history and the legacy of James Joyce’s famous novel every week since Bloomsday 2016. This acclaimed walking tour begins in one of Dublin’s most-treasured literary pubs - The Palace Bar - and was created as a forum 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. Features include Davy Byrne's, Finn’s Hotel, Sweny’s pharmacy, a fantastic hidden sculpture of James Joyce, and a performance of ‘Love’s Old Sweet Song’. If you’ve read the novel you will relish the experience of having it sharpened into focus by a big fan, and if you haven’t, this 3-hour interactive experience is the perfect introduction.

Tour takes place every day from 11 - 18 June, beginning at 2pm, at the Palace Bar, Fleet Street.

Cost: €15
