Bloomsday Festival 2013
June 9th-15th 2013 in Dublin City Centre
Bloomsday Festival is celebrated throughout Dublin and commemorates the work of the Irish Author James Joyce. It is called after the main character in his most famous work of all – Leopold Bloom of Ulysses fame. Ulysses was set in 1904 and fans follow every year in celebrating his memory.
The History & Tradition of Bloomsday
One of the earliest Bloomsday celebrations was a Ulysses lunch, organised by Sylvia Beach, the publisher of Ulysses and her partner Adrienne Monnier in France in June1929. The first Bloomsday celebrated in Ireland was in 1954.
Today Bloomsday is celebrated by Joyceans across the globe with readings, performances, re-enactments and a host of other events. In Dublin, enthusiasts dress in Edwardian costume and gather during the day at many of the location where episodes of Ulysses took place (Martello Tower at Sandycove, Davy Byrne’s pub and 7 Eccles Street).
The James Joyce Centre is located just 1 minute walk from the Castle Hotel.
