Bloomsday is an annual celebration around the world that pays tribute to Dublin-born James Joyce, whose novel, Ulysses, is proclaimed as one of the world's literary masterpieces. In that novel, Leopold Bloom is the main character who wanders around Dublin on June 16 as the novel unfolds over 18 episodes.
