Bloomsday Walking Tour- “Through Nighttown to Eumaeus”
Historian Hugo McGuinness will guide you through the Monto area, the name given to the old red light district in Dublin. Monto was the area enclosed by Talbot, Amiens, Gardiner and Gloucester (Now Seán McDermott) Streets.
Leopold Bloom’s visit to the Monto or Nighttown as Joyce calls it covers three chapters in Ulysses, Oxen of the Sun, Eumaeus, and the main Nighttown chapter Circe. This walking tour through James Joyce’s Monto identifies locations from Ulysses as they are found today and explores them as Joyce did in 1904.
MEETING POINT Talbot Street beside Grainger’s pub, near Connolly Station
DURATION 2 hours
