James Joyce House of the Dead is one of Dublin's most important literary and historic buildings. Located in the city centre, it's where Joyce set his famous story, “The Dead”. Director John Huston located his film of the story here.

Visitors can take one of the daily tours or rent the house for any event, party, business meeting, wedding, dinner or wake.

At The James Joyce House of The Dead, they celebrate and recreate the atmosphere of the dinner party of the century as described by James Joyce in The Dead (Dubliners).

There is a contemporary art gallery in the house where regular exhibitions take place.

Over the past 18 months, some 450 Million people around the globe have read about the restoration of No. 15 Usher's Island. Not bad for what was intended to be no more than the fulfillment of one man's dream.
