Venue Hire

Certain rooms in the James Joyce Centre are available for hire for meetings, functions, events and photoshoots. The stunning period surroundings and quiet nature of the street make it perfect for intimate events, dinners, classes and corporate meetings.

Due to the size and layout of the building we have capacity restrictions for fire safety reasons, so we are unable to host large-scale events.
