Highly recommended interlude if you're of a literary bent and seeking to expand your knowledge of Joycean Dublin. The centre itself was not of great interest to me; a Ulysses film from the 60s was being shown in one of the rooms, there is a...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!

Five Euros entrance fee. Good exhibitions on Ulysses and The Dead. A three-storey building but most of the goods are on the top floor. The garden features more artwork about Ulysses and the actual door from 7 Eccles Street.

This was something of a must-visit for me, as a reader of Joyce for many years. That said, the Centre doesn't have all that much to share-- some of Paul Leon's furniture, a copy of a Joyce death mask, and-- the highlight-- the original door...More

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... More
