Bloomsday Festival

Bloomsday is celebrated on June 16th every year in Dublin and commemorates the work of the Irish author James Joyce and is called after the main character in his most famous work – Leopold Bloom of Ulysses fame. A weeklong celebration of all things Bloom takes place from the 9th - 16th giving you plenty of time to enjoy some of the inspiring events scheduled.

On Bloomsday itself (16th)  Joyce fans dressin Edwardian costume to conjure up the atmosphere of the period in which Ulysses was set – 1904. To understand Bloomsday you need to know that it follows the trials and tribulations of one entire day in the life of Leopold Bloom in Ulysses - Bloomsday June 16th.

Fans follow the route around Dublin taken by Bloom and usually have a breakfast of sausages, beans, black and white pudding and toast at some stage along the way. Davy Byrne’s Pub usually figures in everyone’s Bloomsday celebration at some stage of the day.

The James Joyce Centre on North Great Georges Street have scheduled a week of of engaging and inspiring events, from staples like the traditional Bloomsday Breakfast and walking tours, to brand new theatre, live music, talks and other special events.
