Explore Dublin Through the Eyes of Ireland's Most Famous Author
On this walking tour, famous Dublin Historian and Writer Pat Liddy will introduce you to Ireland's most famous author, James Joyce.
Follow in the footsteps of Leopold Bloom, the main character in Ulysses, and discover the Dublin that inspired Joyce. That Dublin of 1904 is, in many areas, still exactly the same but in other areas a little imagination will have to be applied. Quotations from Ulysses and explanations of the book and the life of Joyce will be given.
Note: A visit to the James Joyce Centre (small fee applies) is an option, as is a visit to the extraordinary Sweny’s Pharmacy - now a reading centre for Joyce’s works.
There are many tours and topics to explore with Pat Liddy - have a look at our overview. A great match to the James Joyce tour might be the more general Literary Tour of Dublin, covering many authors from the city.
Special interest lectures for your groups tailored to their area of interest are also provided by Pat Liddy Tours. Pat Liddy Tours and lectures can be also in German, French, Spanish and Italian - please contact us for details.
Private tours run all year.
