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.

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.
