What with our Bloomsday Breakfasts and Afternoon Teas, we’re going to be pretty hectic at the James Joyce Centre this Bloomsday, but we’re offering a limited number of places for special visits on the day.

Actor Cathal Stephens will surprise you in the rear of the premises with stories about James Joyce and the Centre. You’ll be delighted as he performs short extracts from Ulysses. After which, you can explore our exhibition floor, check out the table where Joyce worked on Finnegans Wake and rap at the door of No. 7 Eccles Street. Be sure to be in your best Bloomsday getup for the cameras!

A founding member of Boston-based Here Comes Everybody Players, Cathal Stephens has been performing work related to James Joyce and his work for over twenty-five years.  He has performed at literary conferences and festivals throughout North America and Europe and has delighted audiences at Dublin’s Bloomsday Festival for several years.

Times: 10.30am, 12.30pm, 2pm and 3.30pm on June 16th. Duration of each visit is 60 minutes approx.

Places are limited - advance booking is strongly recommended.
