James Joyce’s Dubliners Audio Walking Tour

“I’m transported to a different world. Flickering all around me, in this other universe, are the sounds of James Joyce’s Dublin, from church bells to Victorian parlour songs. And inside my head are the rhythms and cadences of Joyce’s Dubliners …. you’re listening to beautifully written, beautifully performed stories through headphones…Layers of history peel away from buildings as you pass. The overwhelming impression left by this tour is one of pulsating life. It’s a joyous celebration not just of Joyce but of parts of Dublin that many natives, never mind tourists, rarely see…Joyce would love it.”
– Arminta Wallace, the Irish Times


“The tour is extremely impressive… A tiny little mp3 player holds some beautiful recordings of these fabulous stories. Slipping on your headphones and heading out onto these historical streets, you are immersed deep into each story…” – Kate O’Connor,


“An accomplished adaptation…a treat for any fan.” – The Sunday Times


“Dubliners: An Audio Tour is a terrific idea, well executed….it is difficult to think of a writer whose work would suit the format more than Joyce.”         – Sara Keating, Sunday Business Post


“a quality piece of work, and a real addition to the city’s Joycean scene. Both as a way to see Dublin with fresh eyes and as an enjoyable recounting of the stories from Dubliners, this is a winner.”
– Dave Madden,


“walking the streets of Joyce’s Dublin has a transporting effect that stays with you…. I can’t think of a much better way to celebrate this monumental year for James Joyce, or indeed to spend a sunny Saturday in our fair city.”


“If there’s any justice, this invigorating tour will become just as essential as the book that inspired it”
– Daragh Reddin, Metro Herald
