James Joyce Tower & Museum
The James Joyce Tower & Museum is situated only 30 minutes from Dublin City Centre. Open daily with free admission. Embrace the literature of James Joyce within this iconic museum at the Martello Tower, Sandycove, Co. Dublin.
Tours of the Tower are available by arrangement. Let one of our enthusiastic and knowledgeable volunteers show you around the most famous building in world literature where James Joyce’s masterpiece begins. Learn why this Martello tower was built, and enjoy the absolutely stunning views of Dublin bay.
The school tours are conducted by friendly volunteers who are more than happy to guide young pupils around the tower and hopefully awaken, in them, an interest in the history and literary stories that make this such a unique and magical place.
Tours can be booked for any day for 10.30 am or 2.30 pm and the tour itself takes about forty five minutes. The pupils will want to spend some time inspecting the exhibits and so an hour to an hour and a half should be allocated for a visit to facilitate a full enjoyment of the experience. A maximum group size of 25 is suggested
