“Every year we feel more light hearted and cheerful as the Leopolds and Mollies cycle by,
and rejoice that we were the country that gave birth to one of the greatest writers ever known” Maeve Binchy, author
“[Glasthule & Sandycove] is a most ordinary place but which blossoms every year in strange regalia to honour the greatest writer of the 20th Century” Tim Pat Coogan, historian
“He liked thick giblet soup, nutty gizzards, a stuffed roast heart,
liverslices fried with crustcrumbs, fried hencods’ roes. Most of all
he liked grilled mutton kidneys which gave to his palate a
fine tang of faintly scented urine” Episode 4
"Arrah, give over your bloody codding, Joe, says I.
I’ve a thirst on me I wouldn’t sell for half a crown" Episode 12
Join us in celebrating...
friday, June 16th 2017
with Fitzgeralds of Sandycove
Join us in celebrating the life and work of the great James Joyce in this unique festival. Soak up the atmosphere as many folk pass-by dressed in full Joycean attire in vintage cars whilst others recite passages from his most famous work ‘Ulysses,’ as you join us for our ‘Joycean Lunch’ of grilled mutton kidneys, stuffed roast heart & fried liver slices – although we offer a regular lunch menu for the less adventurous!
For it was the Martello Tower here in Sandycove, on June 16th 1904, in which Leopold Bloom began his journey through Dublin, in what was to become one of the world’s most famous stories.
