James Joyce Walking Tour
Dublin City, Co. Dublin
30 November 2023 - 8 June 2024
Guides from the James Joyce Centre take you through Dublin, exploring the history of the city and the various locations described by Ireland's greatest writer, James Joyce.

The James Joyce Centre offers two public walking tours of the city based on Joyce’s life and work: Introducing Joyce's Dublin and Footsteps of Leopold Bloom.

Though Joyce lived most of his life outside of Ireland, Dublin would provide the backdrop for virtually all of his work. On a stroll around the inner city, our guide will explain the real-life inspiration behind some of Joyce’s most celebrated writing, demonstrating just how central the streetscape of the ‘Hibernian metropolis’ was to the author’s life and art. The tour visits such stops as Belvedere College, the Gresham Hotel, the James Joyce Statue, Davy Byrnes, and the National Library.

This is an excellent and fun introduction to Joyce in a bustling part of the city.
