A Joyce Circular - Tues & Sat 11:00
Take in Nth Earl St and the Joyce Statue (irreverantly dubbed the ‘Prick with the Stick’), Belvedere College where Joyce attended school in the 1890’s, the house where Leopold & Molly Bloom lived and the house where Sean O’Casey was born. The tour can take place on other days but has to be booked two weeks in advance.
Wander through the turn of the century Dublin recreated in Joyce's stories, specifically Dubliners which he finished 100 years ago. Discover a city full of politics, intrigue, religious devotion and ties of family in this fascinating tour.
In the Footsteps of Leopold Bloom Tues 14:00, Thurs 11:00
This tour explores the background to Joyce’s Ulysses and to Bloom’s thoughts as he crosses the city in the ‘Lestrygonians’ episode. A humorous contrast of well-fed and under-fed citizens is mixed with a commentary on city buildings, and the presence of police constables reminds us of the realities of Dublin as a colonial city.
