What is Bloomsday Ireland

Bloomsday, Dublin

Statue of James Joyce in the center of Dublin

Bloomsday is not an ordinary church or state holiday: A novel is celebrated on this day - and its hero, Leopold Bloom. In the most important work by James Joyce, "Ulysses", a day in the life of the Dublin employee Bloom is described on around a thousand pages: June 16, 1904 .... Fans spend this day in the footsteps of the author and hero of the novel. You buy lemon soap in a specific shop, roam the streets of Dublin and of course end the day with a pub crawl. Strangers can join guided tours to the locations of the novel, and there are readings from Joyce's works all over the city.
