Ulysses in Sandymount Tour - SOLD OUT!

  • James Joyce Centre 35 North Great George's Street Dublin, County Dublin, D01 WK44 Ireland (map)

"Am I walking into eternity along Sandymount Strand?"

This extended tour offers Joyceans an opportunity to get outside the city and explore the area around Sandymount that Joyce returns to in three episodes of Ulysses. Travelling by train from the city centre, this tour takes in Newbridge Avenue, the home of Paddy Dignam in the 'Hades' episode; the Star of the Sea Church & Leahy's Terrace, featured in the 'Nausicaa' episode; and Sandymount Strand, the setting for both 'Proteus' and 'Nausicaa'. It also takes in the Shelbourne Road (where Joyce rented rooms in 1904), Dromard Terrace (where Joyce spent the night of 16 June 1904), and the birthplace of WB Yeats.

Please Note: This is an extended tour, lasting approximately three hours. Duration may vary as the tour is dependent on public transport. This tour ends at Connolly Station.
