  • It's a fun museum with great staff who are more than willing to talk you through anything regarding the author and the general area. Very informative...so informative, you literally had two people talking to you at once, which was fun and told me they care and had so much to share. I will definitely come back again.
  • Lensmen Photography and Video did a photoshoot in the James Joyce Museum and it was a great experience! We were able to see the Martelo tower. The views from the top of the tower were excellent for the photography session.
  • A gem. Anyone who loves Ulysses needs to visit; Joyce stayed here for six days and worked this experience into the opening chapter of Ulysses, with "stately plump Buck Mulligan" and Stephen Daedalus, suffering from "agenbite of inwit." Original manuscript letters to and from Joyce, Joyce's death mask, his walking cane, travel trunk, and many other delights.
  • Lovely little museum with great views of DUblin bay
  • Great views of Dublin Bay, amazing information about Joyce and the history of the tower. The staff are amazingly helpful. I'll be back.
