As a fan of Joyce I was excited about visiting this attraction. I wasn't disappointed. The information is vast and available in a easy manner. It filled in a few gaps for me about Joyce's life and inspirations. Well worth a visit.

I went there on a Friday morning and was one of the few visitors. It's a tiny Museum, quite expensive (7,50€) but it'll please any James Joyce fan!

Must see for all Joyce devotees & those wanting more "flesh on the bones" of one of Ireland's literary heroes. Fascinating, evocative & atmospheric. Wonderful murals + memorabilia. One visit not enough so, as we're in Dub each November.......!

Guys. I'll be honest. I'm a huge Joyce fan, so they literally would have had to have been really awful tour guides or personnel to get much less than a five star review. But that being said, I truly enjoyed my experience here. My advice:...More

Even those not total fans can get a lot out of this museum. My husband, who hasn't read Joyce, was fascinated by many of the videos, quotes, interactive material. For us fans, the Centre is even more moving. Seeing Joyce's room and the door of...More
