James Joyce Cultural Centre, Dublin

(4/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
While on vacation in Dublin, use the opportunity to learn about the city's history and get a glimpse of one of the nation's most beloved figures at James Joyce Cultural Centre. The authenticly restored 18th-century townhouse housing the museum is a historic artifact in and of itself. Even though James Joyce never lived here, this used to be the seat of the dance school run by Denis J. Maginni, whom the author immortalized in "Ulysses." Learn about Joyce's life and works through a myriad of interactive displays and authentic items, and take a tour of the writer's reconstructed study. To gain an even more in-depth knowledge of the world that inspired the novelist, book a walking tour of the city organized by the museum. Make James Joyce Cultural Centre a centerpiece of your Dublin vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Dublin itinerary planner.
