James Joyce Centre: Through interactive installations and three films which interpret and illuminate various aspects of Joyce's life and work. Interactive computer installations allow visitors to explore the content of Ulysses episode by episode, and to explore Joyce's biography year by year. Furniture from the apartment of Paul Leon, Joyce's friend and advisor is on display. The Family Tree of Ulysses in Print provides information on the many editions of Ulysses from the first edition, published by Shakespeare & Company on 2 February 1922, to the editions available in bookstores today. A copy of Joyce's death mask by sculptor Paul Speck is also on view. The three documentary films (each 10 - 12 minutes long) detail the controversy over Ulysses, the relationship between Joyce and the National Library of Ireland, and Joyce's contemporary legacy. The original front-door from number 7 Eccles Street (Leopold Bloom's home in Ulysses) is on display in the yard at the back of the house.

There are three walking tours of Dublin. A Joyce Circular which take in North Earl Street and the 'Prick with the Stick'; the house where Oliver 'Buck Mulligan' Gogarty was born; the setting of the Dubliners story 'The Boarding House'; the house in which Sean O'Casey was born; the site of 7 Eccles Street, home of Leopold & Molly Bloom; and Belvedere College, which Joyce attended in the 1890s. Dubliners tour which goes through the city of Joyce's first and most accessible work, Dubliners. The tour examines Joyce's life in Dublin and the Dublin he created in his stories, as well as looking at how the city has commemorated it famous son. In the Footsteps of Leopold Bloom tour explores the background to Joyce's Ulysses and to Bloom's thoughts as he crosses the city in search of something to eat in the 'Lestrygonians' episode.
