I had yet to read any James Joyce before coming to Dublin, but the Cultural Centre convinced me of the importance of this great author! The museum is small, so it doesn't take more than an hour to enjoy.

Actually it is called the James Joyce Centre located at 35 North Great George's St. The center provides a discount with a US student ID. Informative exhibits about James Joyce and in the back garden, the door to 7 Eccles St.

Worth a visit, if you are a Joyce fan or are interested in his work. The exhibit and the documentaries are excellent, with a clear focus on Ulysses.

We are amongst the 90 percent who have a copy of Ulysses but have never read it. So we wanted to know more. Yes, he never lived here - but then for most of Joyce's professional life he lived in Paris. Take the audio tour...More
