Entrance to 7 Eccles Street at the James Joyce Centre

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

The Centre is situated in a restored 18th-century Georgian townhouse at 35 North Great George's Street, Dublin, dating from a time when north inner city Dublin was at the height of its grandeur. On permanent exhibit is furniture from Paul Leon's apartment in Paris, where Joyce wrote much of Finnegans Wake, and the door to the home of Leopold Bloom and his wife, Molly, number 7 Eccles Street, one of the more famous addresses in literature, which had been rescued from demolition by John Ryan. Temporary exhibitions interpret and illuminate various aspects of Joyce's life and work.

There is another Joycean display at the James Joyce Tower in Sandycove.
