The James Joyce Centere is dedicated to promoting an understanding of the life and works of James Joyce. It is seated in a restored 18th century Georgian townhouse, dating from the time when the north inner city of Dublin was at the height of its grandeur.
The James Joyce Centre was officially opened by the President of Ireland, Mary Robinson, on 10 June, l996.
This Martello tower was a temporary home to James Joyce, and is the setting for the first chapter of Joyce's great novel, Ulysses, described pretty much as you will see it today. The gun platform has extroadinary views. You can see rare editions of Joyce's work, letters, photo's and perseon possessions.
