Centre itself is a treasure, brings Joyce to life. We took an additional Joyce walk, which was two hours, perfectly pitched to welcome casual interest and experts alike, explaining the history and literary contexts as well as giving us a feel for Dublin.

Very interesting place. Not a museum, but a place to spend time with Joyce and getting and understanding of Ulysses. I will probably never read it. But now I know why! There are also guided tours where you follow in the tracks of Leopold, Stephen...More
