This is a specialty attraction, not for everyone but if you are a follower of James Joyce and have read any of his works and been inspired by them, this is a place to visit. It offers a rich background on Joyce's life, his struggles...More

Long trip. Everything was there. Joyce's room. His atmosphere. With the exception of a bad tempered dubliner... Shame! They should have somebody more friendly...Wonderful attraction for those who are fond of Joyce, his work and literature in general. Don't miss it!

What can I say, we were there for Bloom's Day! This is a must see experience for anyone who's read Joyce. No one is better at connecting the details of the a place to the triumph of the human spirit.

I am a big enthusiast of James Joyce so I had to visit the centre. And I did not regret! I've been there a few times. It's pretty empty on a regular day but once you visit the place on Bloomsday, you'll keep returning:) Bloomsday...More

We stayed in Dublin for an extended Bloomsday visit for the first time. We had booked a bus tour and two walks (Dubliners and Bloomsday) offered by the JJ Centre over the internet, which were all excellent. Our guides were well versed in the works...More

It's just a very small house, without much rings to see or interact.
