Can you provide any assistance for people with disabilities? Like a wheelchair for the walking tours?
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 floor level of the building for those in a wheelchair.
We do not provide wheelchairs for our guided walking tours. Our tours cover about 2-3km distance across the city and some of the pathways are uneven. However, if you contact us directly outlining your needs we'd be more than happy to help accommodate you if possible. The form here won't allow me to include my email (which you can find on the Centre's website) but if you PM me we can chat.

The house itself would be very difficult for a wheelchair user. Access even to the groundfloor (not much to see there) is up a flight of stairs. To the main exhibits would require climbing stairs. As for the self-guided walking tours following the plaques, it covers a significant distance across some main roads and up and down slopes. As far as we know, there is no assistance - but maybe ask via the contacts on the James Joyce Centre website.
