The James Joyce Centre – Special Interest Walking Tours
Why not join The James Joyce Centre for a special walking tour of Dublin, the setting for all of James Joyce's works and take in some of the monumental and ordinary sights and sounds of the city in which Joyce staged all his works.
There are two walking tours:
A Joyce Circular Tour
On an andante dander around the Hibernian metropolis, your groups can take in North Earl Street and the ‘Prick with the Stick’; the house where Oliver ‘Buck Mulligan’ Gogarty was born; the setting of the Dubliners story ‘The Boarding House’; the house in which Sean O’Casey was born; the site of 7 Eccles Street, home of Leopold & Molly Bloom; and Belvedere College, which Joyce attended in the 1890s.
The tour starts from and returns to the James Joyce Centre.
Your group can join their guide on a ramble through the city of Joyce’s first and most accessible work, Dubliners. The Dubliners skilfully treats both turn-of-the-century Dublin and Joyce’s surroundings in continental Europe where the stories were written. The tour examines Joyce’s life in Dublin and the Dublin he created in his stories, as well as looking at how the city has commemorated its famous son. Joyce’s Dublin was a city of politics and intrigue, of religious devotion and disaffection, as well as a city in which the pressures and ties of family and society were never far off. The tour starts from the James Joyce Centre and finishes near Trinity College.
During high season there are two tours, three times a week (Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday).
During low season tours run on Saturday only. Please contact us for further details and exact times/dates.
