In the past the National Library of Ireland hosted the exhibition 'James Joyce Ulysses'. Now the highlights of that exhibition like interactive installations and three films have found a new home in the James Joyce Cultural Centre. The centre invites you to enjoy one of their permanent and temporary exhibitions that will help you to understand Joyce's life and works.
The museum is housed in a 1784 Georgian Town House and hosts a variety of exhibits, an archive and a reference library. The house itself volunteered as the home of one of Joyce's characters in the novel 'Ulysses'; the extravagant professor of dancing Dennis J Maginni.
Further you will find illustrated character biographies, all inspired by authentic Dubliners. Other exhibits like the Joyce Study illuminate the circumstances the author was working under during the creation of 'Ulysses'. James Joyce's death mask is also on display.
The museum also offers a variety of walking tours that will take you past the locations in Dublin that influenced and that found representation in Joyce's works. Some of the tours are 'In the Footsteps of Leopold Bloom' and 'A Joyce Circular'. Please bear in mind that there are no tours on a Sunday.
