Visit the setting of the most important dining room in world literature, the setting for James Joyce's 'The Dead' in the dark gaunt house at 15 Usher's Island in the heart of Dublin's ancient Liberties, with a pre-history going back more than a thousand years. Look down on Joyce's Anna Livia and James Joyce Bridge. Calatrava's homage to the James Joyce House frames us within the metal reclining arms of his bridge as though they were the pages of a book open on its spine.
Spend a night in the Master Suite, a quaint upper floor room furnished with period furniture from Joyce's era. Our beds have modern mattresses! This is not the home of the wealthy but rather the semi-distressed though highly atmospheric space where Joyce's aunts lived on the upper floor. Where Lily the caretakers daughter was literally run off her feet attending to guests.
Zugang für Gäste

Weitere wichtige Infos
We are an old building which requires access from a busy city street up six ancient granite steps (which have settled unevenly over the centuries). Accommodation is on the first floor accessed via two flights of stairs. It is an old house - older than America! It does not have a lift so it does involve a climb as you gain the stairs. You are on the edge of the river Liffey, Joyce's Anna Livia on a national primary route so you can expect all the background noise of a busy city where you will literally feel the shake and rattle of passing traffic. You get used to it quickly.
No smoking. No parties. UNREGISTERED PATRONS ARE NOT ALLOW INTO THE BUILDING UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. This room is strictly a 2 person capacity room.
