We did not expect a walking tour to be sold out, but it was a sunny day and it was full. We settled for a tour of the house. Small with limited exhibits, but interesting for me who had not made it through "The Dubliners"...More

If you are a Joyce's follower visiting this place is like the cherry of the cake after walking around the city and to sandycove beach. During bloomsday they organise many events. I did a walking tour with them too. Enjoyed both.

I visited this attraction having never read any James Joyce. However, I still enjoyed this attraction. James was a very interesting and complex character who did not have a smooth ride to success. The historical context of his life was also set out so putting...More

I visited the James Joyce Cultural Centre and was a bit disappointed. The exhibition on the top floor is tiny and did not tell me anything I didn't yet know. The house has no relation to James Joyce or his family. There are some nice...More

The very competent guides make the walks organised by the centre very worthwhile. Check their homepage for dates! We have been on both tours and they were absolute highlights. Grab a book, as well. Some of them are very reasonable!
