This Bloomsday, recreate the walk taken through Dublin by Leopold Bloom, in the famous novel Ulysses. See landmarks made famous by the book, and share your passion for literature with fellow enthusiasts at Davy Byrne’s pub.


Every year, crowds of literature lovers flock to Dublin on June 16th to celebrate the life of famed Irish writer, James Joyce, and relive some of the events in his universally-acclaimed novel – all of which took place in Dublin on June 16, 1904.

This vibrant celebration is best enjoyed with our very special Ulysses walking tour. Ramble through the life of Leopold Bloom and recreate his iconic walk through Dublin.

Along the way, you’ll see highlights such as the James Joyce Statue, the James Joyce Centre, and Belveder College, Joyce’s old school.

You’ll also see famous places from the novel, including Monto (the former red light district of Dublin), Westland Row Railway Station, Sweny’s Pharmacy, and many more, before finishing at Davy Byrne’s pub – the location of Leopold Bloom’s famous lunch.

At that very pub, surrounded by other enthusiasts dressed in the fashions of the early 1900s, you can raise a glass in honour of Ireland’s most illustrious writer.

  • Rating: 5 “Bloomsday tour interesting and informative”

    Reviewed by James – Calgary, Canada on June 25, 2013 It helps to be interested in the book Ulysses to enjoy this tour but I went with family who had not read the book and they enjoyed the tour as well. It was a good walking tour and Pat knows Dublin and James Joyce well. He is clearly well-known as he goes along the streets of Dublin. He gives some good background and I came away with more appreciation of the book, a better overview of Dublin and some ideas as to what I wanted to pursue further. The only suggestion for improvement would be to take the tour past some place where there are public toilets as the tour is over 2 hours long...

  • Rating: 5 “Thoroughly enjoyable walk with someone who clearly loves their job.”

    Reviewed by Teresa – Drogheda, Ireland on June 25, 2013 A very enjoyable and informative session. I see Dublin in a whole new light now.

  • Rating: 5 “Thorough, enjoyable guide through James Joyce's Dublin with Pat Liddy.”

    Reviewed by Ralph – Chicago, United States on June 19, 2013 This walking your was a special event celebrating Bloomsday, June 16th. Pat Liddy was an entertaining, energetic and informative raconteur throughout. He even did double duty as a speaker/actor, reading appropriate passages from Ulysses.

  • Rating: 5 “Very witty and entertaining guide”

    Reviewed by Monika – Bray, Ireland on June 19, 2012 I am going to return to try the other walks with Pat Liddy and his guides. A thoroughly entertaining, very informative tour, peppered with personal stories and witty remarks. I have got much more than I paid for - thank you very much for all the extra info about Joyce and Dublin. Unmissable.
