The most unique way to celebrate Bloomsday with your friends or colleagues
The Bloomsday Messenger Bike Rally & Lunch. Get your Boater on!

Bloomsday 2018 - Friday 18th June

Starting on St. Stephen’s Green, the Lord Mayor will join us on the steps of the mansion House for a rousing rendition of “Molly Malone”. The bicycles will ring in unison as our Edwardian ladies and gentlemen continue on their tour of Dublin’s fair city, making pit-stops along the way for some well-deserved refreshments and sandwiches at friendly public houses.

If not a cyclist then be one of the 300 lunch guests to welcome the rally to its final destination, the ballroom of the Shelbourne Hotel. Enter into the spirit of Bloomsday with friends and colleagues, enjoy a great lunch in good company, and have some fun with our charity auction and raffle. We hope you can join us this year and look forward to seeing you there.

Our Bloomsday event for 2017 was a massive success raising over €50,000

On behalf of the Irish Youth Foundation board, team and Bloomsday committee we would like to thank our sponsors Brennan Bread and everyone who contributed. The funds raised this year will go towards projects that work with children and young people in disadvantaged circumstances in Ireland- specifically the St. Agnes Youth Orchestra in Crumlin.
