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

We visited this lovely house that has been turned into a small museum and cultural center honoring Joyce. The upstairs has a room with three short documentary films that are quite good. It also has furniture from Joyce's Paris quarters. The gift shop is also...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.

My wife is the JJ fan but I enjoyed my self too. Free audio guides make it much more interesting, too. Lots of Irish literary history here. Comfy seats, too.

I love Joyce and dragged my somewhat reluctant friends to go on the Introduction to Joyce's Dublin tour because I was so excited about it. We arrived at the Center to be greeted by a very grumpy American-born young man who turned out to be...More

Frank Kiely's screen print exhibition showed the centre's engagement with more experimental and ambitious approaches to visualising Joyce's work. The permanent collection was interesting and I enjoyed seeing the door of 7 Eccles Street, along with the large scale reproduction of the poster/catalogue from ICA's...More
