The exhibition is quite sparse with little to see beyond quotes written on the wall, Joyce-related decorations and a few videos. When we arrived at reception, we were told about the layout of the house and to take ourselves around. I'm not sure if they...More

An amazing sip of Dublin's most important writer's work. It will provide you with as much information as you need about this great artist's life and career. Allow yourself some hours to enjoy this amazing experience.

I love and admire James Joyce's work, and as a fan I can say that this centre is fantastic. There is absolutely all about his life and his work, and there is also personal objects and books that will take your breath away.

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.

We visited the centre and took their "In the Footsteps of Leopold Bloom" walking tour. The centre is on the small side, but the collection they have is worth seeing, and the gift shop is filled with great Joyce items. I would recommend about 90...More
