Dublin - Dublin City / South Georgian Quarter

Sweny’s Joycean Pharmacy

Sweny’s is a wonderful evocation of Joycean and indeed Victorian Dublin. Mentioned in chapter 5 of Ulysses, where Leopold Bloom comes in to buy a bar of lemon soap, it hasn’t changed its interior since the 1890’s and was a working Pharmacy from 1847 to 2009. It is now run lovingly by volunteers who hold group readings of Joyce’s work. All and sundry are welcome to hear readings, stories and maybe a few Edwardian songs all evening.
