There will also be a lecture on Joyce and music, which includes a live tenor and pianist. Quite a month ahead!

Saturday 10th and Saturday 24th at 11.00am
Joyce’s Dublin, 1892-1902

Join our guide on a walk through a less travelled part of Joyce’s Dublin. This tour visits 6 of Joyce’s residences in Dublin (Fitzgibbon Street, North Richmond Street, Convent Avenue, Richmond Avenue, Royal Terrace and Windsor Avenue) and discusses the impact of Dublin’s ‘Northside’ on Joyce’s works. In addition to Joyce’s residences, we visit several locations important to Stephen Hero, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Dubliners before concluding with a walk through ‘Monto’ (the former red-light district and location of the ‘Circe’ episode of Ulysses).

Time: 2-2.5 hours
Adult: €10
Student/Senior: €8

Saturday 17th and Saturday 31st at 2.00pm
Cemeteries and Cerements: The Underworld of Joyce’s Dublin

Join us for an entertaining virtual tour (photo projections of Dublin then and now) of the ghosts and otherworldly occurrences in Joyce’s Dublin. From the witch-like Maria’s journey across the city on Halloween, to Stephen Dedalus’s haunting visions of his mother’s ghost, the shade of Parnell and, of course, the house at No. 15 Usher’s Island, Joyce’s Dubliners exist amid continual reminders of the spirit-world. Come find out what did these continual reminders of the past meant for Joyce and his characters.

Plus tea and barmbracks too!

Time: 1 hour
Adult: €5

€2 with admission to Centre.

And on Monday 19 October Terence Killeen’s lecture ‘The Joyce of Music: An Exploration in Sound’ will feature accompaniment by a live tenor and pianist!
