For lovers of Irish literature, the James Joyce Centre is a Dublin museum entirely dedicated to the famous writer James Joyce (1882-1941). The opportunity for you to discover (or rediscover!) his work, his life, as well as his most beautiful literary productions!
The James Joyce Museum is located in an old part of Dublin, within an 18th century Georgian red brick building. Among the museum’s activities, there is a permanent exhibition of the furniture that once furnished Joyce’s room when he was in Paris (in the Paul Léon district), with his famous office, the birthplace of one of his most beautiful novels: Finnegans Wake.
You will also have the opportunity to admire numerous personal objects that belonged to the writer, as well as to discover a complete overview of his life, his loves (with the passionate Nora Barnacle) and his work. Many extracts that you will be able to discover throughout your visit: all translated into multilingual for those who are allergic to the language of Shakespeare!
The museum is great, very well documented, and will take you back to the 19th century, the flamboyant era of Irish writers. It will give you the opportunity to decipher the writer’s novels, which for nearly 80 years have been the source of countless interpretations and other disagreements between specialists of James Joyce. It must be said that James Joyce has become a veritable institution in Ireland, one of the most commented authors after Shakespeare!
In short, a visit that will surely make you want to read the great works of the Irish artist!
