Why locals love it

Joyce, one of our famous writers hung out here and mentioned it in his famous book. It has been a well kept secret for years but some guides are now listing it so it might not stay that way. There are live readings of his works on different days and you can sit and read and participate.

Why you should visit it

If you have been trying to figure Ulysses out they will help you here. It really is a magical place, time has stood still in here and you can even buy the special lemon soap that is hand made the old way. If you have a passion for Joyce you will appreciate this place.

Special tip

Ulysses readings are on Saturday mornings and they go have coffee afterwards, if you are nice they might invite you.

The volunteers working there do an excellent job chatting to people about the famous and unreadable (personal opinion) Irish writer. You can support the cause by buying Joyce's books, lemon soap or post cards :)
