The James Joyce Centre in Dublin


The James Joyce Centre is dedicated to promoting and understanding of the life and works of James Joyce.


The centre’s home is a restored 18th century Georgian townhouse in the north inner city of Dublin, the city of Joyce’s birth and the setting for all his works. From this central location in Joyce’s heartland the centre aims to foster an appreciation of this most remarkable and significant literary figure of the 20th century.
