10 Questions About…


Sunday in Sandycove by Ann Treacy

Filed under: Bloomsday, Dun Laoghaire

Our insanely optimistic plan for today was to follow the Bloomsday trail around Dublin. What I the heck is Bloomsady? Well, James Joyce’s book Ulysses is about a day in the life of Leopold Bloom and to a lesser degree Stephen Daedalus. The book follows their paths through Dublin on June 16, 1904. Every year, loads of people follow the map on the anniversary. We did it ourselves 15 years ago. I got it into my head that it would be fun to do the trip in the off season with the kids.

We didn’t get very fair – but the videos below highlight what we did see. And we’ll start again where we left off another day. If you want to read some fun Cliff Notes for Ulysses, check out James Joyce for Dummies

After the trip to Sandycove, we took a drive around Killiney and Dalkey. It’s not really that far from where we live but the homes and the views are amazing! We drove by Enya’s caste and Bono’s house.
