James Joyce Centre
The Joyce Centre is located in a wonderfully restored Georgian townhouse close to O’Connell Street, the city’s main thoroughfare. The centre is dedicated to the promotion of the life and works of James Joyce. There are guided tours of the house as well as walks through the heartland of Joyce’s north inner city.
The centre houses the Guinness reference library, which can be used by visitors and has audio-visual material relating to Joyce. There are various exhibition rooms, a book shop and a coffee shop called the ‘Ulysses Experience,’ which contains a mural based on Joyce’s most famous novel and incorporates the door of No. 7 Eccles Street - the fictional home of Leopold and Molly Bloom. Visitors are welcomed by members of staff as well as relatives of Joyce..
