Visits to the James Joyce Centre

The main permanent exhibition is self-guided and focuses on Ulysses, but also deals with other aspects of Joyce’s life and work. The exhibition contains video documentaries, room reconstructions and computer installations. You can also see the door of No 7 Eccles Street, the home of Leopold Bloom in Ulysses, and the furniture from Paul Léon’s apartment, where Joyce wrote part of Finnegans Wake. In addition, we host temporary exhibitions inspired by Joyce, his life and works.

Group admission to the Centre is €3.50 for students.

We offer workshops at the Centre for groups studying works by James Joyce.
The students will be led in a discussion which will touch on different aspects of the chosen text and we hope to be able to introduce them to unfamiliar aspects, so they go back to the text again with different eyes.

The basic charge is €5 per student for a workshop lasting 50 minutes. For more details see terms and conditions below or contact
