Bloomsday is taking place from the 9th of June to the 16th of June in Dublin. The day itself is named after Leopold Bloom who was the central character in the novel Ulysses written by James Joyce. Patrick Kavanagh and Flann O’Brien were two literary greats who made the festival so popular. The two men visited some popular watering holes around Dublin and read out passages from the novel Ulysses. Today the James Joyce centre in Dublin hosts the event and “Joyceans" as they are called will dress up and recreate many of the scenes from the novel. Bloomsday is a fun festival that is celebrated nationally and internationally.
The Jackson Court Hotel
located in Dublin City Centre is the ideal place to stay if you are attending the event in The James Joyce Centre.
