James Joyce House of the Dead information
The restoration of the setting for James Joyce’s story The Dead has been a labour of love for barrister Brendan Kilty. As a museum there aren’t many actual artefacts (besides touring exhibitions) but walking through the crumbling rooms that are almost as they were when Joyce spent Christmases there with his aunts is very special.
