We availed ourselves of multiple experiences: the pub crawl, the bus trip out to the Tower, the breakfast and tea on Bloomsday, and... Each was wonderful in its own way with superb guides. A must for Joyceans and friends!!

We were led by a charming young man named Conor, a Trinity grad, passionate about Joyce and literature. He read from JJ's works at appropriate spots, and knew Bloom and Daedalus and their Dublin intimately. We had a great time.

I had high hopes for this attraction, which is part of the Dublin Pass offer. I think it would be better in a smaller building as there is too much house and not enough exhibition. There are some interesting items and short film clips. Not...More

For those of you Joyce aficionados - this is a great place to visit. There are several films showing simultaneously - a scholarly interview with professors and the film version of "Ulysses". There is a reconstruction of Joyce's rooms in Trieste, complete with actual furniture,...More

My husband is a fan of James Joyce, but he had to admit this was disappointing. James Joyce wrote about Dublin, but he chose to live elsewhere for most of his life. Perhaps we should also choose to go elsewhere, because there is not much...More

This cultural center is actually a house not far from Marlborough Street in Dublin. Unfortunately you would expect a much better tribute to Joyce than few writings on a wall and some videos.

Interesting place for James Joyce fans. You can see his room, watch videos and see the original front door downstairs in the outside area.
