Interesting place for James Joyce fans. You can see his room, watch videos and see the original front door downstairs in the outside area.

I went in a tour showing the main places related to James Joyce's life and his main characters leaded by the beautiful and amazing Lucy. Lucy is a writer who loves and understands JJ's work profoundly. The tour overcame my expectations, giving a hint on...More

My wife is the JJ fan but I enjoyed my self too. Free audio guides make it much more interesting, too. Lots of Irish literary history here. Comfy seats, too.

I love Joyce and dragged my somewhat reluctant friends to go on the Introduction to Joyce's Dublin tour because I was so excited about it. We arrived at the Center to be greeted by a very grumpy American-born young man who turned out to be...More

Frank Kiely's screen print exhibition showed the centre's engagement with more experimental and ambitious approaches to visualising Joyce's work. The permanent collection was interesting and I enjoyed seeing the door of 7 Eccles Street, along with the large scale reproduction of the poster/catalogue from ICA's...More

As fans of Joyce and the great Irish writers, this was our first stop in Dublin, and we were disappointed. This could be an interesting place, but it is quite run down--none of the videos/movies were working. There are a few, very few, interesting items...More

As a fan of Joyce I was excited about visiting this attraction. I wasn't disappointed. The information is vast and available in a easy manner. It filled in a few gaps for me about Joyce's life and inspirations. Well worth a visit.

I went there on a Friday morning and was one of the few visitors. It's a tiny Museum, quite expensive (7,50€) but it'll please any James Joyce fan!

Home to the door of number 7 Eccles Street, should be a must see if you are a Joyce fan! There is a neat exhibition upstairs and a variety of facts throughout the centre. The staff working it were knowledgeable on Joyce and gave me...More

Must see for all Joyce devotees & those wanting more "flesh on the bones" of one of Ireland's literary heroes. Fascinating, evocative & atmospheric. Wonderful murals + memorabilia. One visit not enough so, as we're in Dub each November.......!

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... More
