The young Joyce spent Christmases with his aunts in this house, which he later used as the setting for 'The Dead', the last story in Dubliners (made into a 1997 film by John Huston). The partially restored house is only open by appointment; there's also the opportunity to book a meal like that enjoyed in the story.
