Your Visit


The James Joyce Cultural Centre, situated in a stunning Georgian townhouse, offers the visitor historical and biographical information about James Joyce and his influence in literature. See the door to the famous No 7 Eccles Street from “Ulysses”, a recreation of his living quarters, art exhibitions and more to bring the author and his works to life. With the help of audio guides, interactive displays and knowledgeable walking tour guides, you will discover a piece of the literary history of Dublin. Our walking tours appeal to visitors with a casual interest and Joycean experts alike while our shop has a great selection of books by and on Joyce as well as other Joycean memorabilia. We run monthly evening lectures between September and June. You can also book a private walking tour.

Only the ground floor of the Centre is wheelchair-accessible.
