I love Joyce, so I expected nothing less... but the place is jam packed with fun Joyce info and memorabilia. Don't miss the No. 7 Eccles Street door in the courtyard or the interactive displays on the top floor. The place is a little bit...More

Thank you for your review. We look forward to having you back.
This is an Outstanding visit for those who love Joyce, particularly for those who love Ulysses. It is authentic, well done, informative and the staff are outstanding. If you fit the criteria, you MUST spend time here.
Many, if not most, people have not read...More
. . . when I finished it I went back and arranged a private tour through the Centre and walked Bloom's talk. Coner, my guide and a Trinity College Ph.D., was exceptional. He and the rest of the Centre's staff are knowledgeable and encouraging. Ulysses...More
This is a nice little museum. It has artefacts from Joyce’s life and works and has some very good audio-visual materials to bring his story to life. There is a nice bookshop and the people are very helpful. Its not a huge museum but well...More
The cultural centre is situated on North Great George Street and is not far from the hustle and bustle of O'Connell Street Upper.
It is housed in a splendid Georgian mansion and although fairly small, there's plenty of Joyce related information pertaining to his life...More
The building is what I most enjoyed! Sorry to any ardent Joyce fans but the Georgian building is just stunning - especially the friezework and plasterwork. The entire street is beautiful! If you do like Joyce, then it's obviously a must. The top floor had...More
The title of this establishment may set some folks up for disappointment, so please note that this is basically a modest, though informative mini-museum. Located in a Georgian townhouse, one feels on stepping in the door like one is visiting characters from Dubliners. There's a...More
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.
It is on the north side of Dublin near city center on N Great George Lane. It is open Monday to Friday from 1100 to 1600 last I was there. It has a couple of Joyce themed exhibits and a gift shop though the most unique part... More
It is on the north side of Dublin near city center on N Great George Lane. It is open Monday to Friday from 1100 to 1600 last I was there. It has a couple of Joyce themed exhibits and a gift shop though the most unique part would be that they have 7 Eccles Street's original door out back.

Hi Brigidm7, thanks for your query.
Unfortunately the Centre is located in a listed historical building and at the present time we do not have an external lift. We do have a mobile ramp which allows access to the ground floor level of the building for those in a wheelchair.
We do not provide wheelchairs for our guided walking tours. Our tours cover about 2-3km distance across the city and some of the pathways are uneven. However, if you contact us directly outlining your needs we'd be more than happy to help accommodate you if possible. The form here won't allow me to include my email (which you can find on the Centre's website) but if you PM me we can chat.
