James Joyce’s Ulysses
features what we’ll wager is one of
the most famous breakfasts in literature, the fried pork
kidney enjoyed by Leopold Bloom in the Calypso’ episode
Over the years,
the Bloomsday Breakfast
has become one of
the festival’s most established traditions
and we are
delighted to keep it alive with the help of
Dublin - UNESCO
City of Literature.
So take a leaf out of Bloom’s book and enjoy a hearty meal
"tuck into offal-y hearty breakfasts, of
piquant kidneys with a “fine tang of faintly scented urine”.
out on your virtual travels this Bloomsday!
With performances and songs from Ulysses with Sinead Murphy,
Darina Gallagher, Les Doherty and Elaine Reddy
It’s time to don that boater hat and and join Caitriona
Balfe, Aidan Gillen, Glen Hansard, David Norris, and
friends, for an evening of readings and songs from Ulysses
as part of the Bloomsday Festival’s flagship event “Readings
and Songs”, at 7pm on Youtube Live, on the
