Attractions near The Gresham Hotel

The tale of James Joyce

A short stroll from the hotel is the James Joyce Centre, a must-see for literary enthusiasts and history buffs wanting to explore the background of one of Ireland’s best-known writers. The James Joyce Centre is located inside a charming Georgian house, just like the one this literary great called home.

Feel free to take in the exhibits paying tribute to Joyce's work and peruse the interesting artefacts on display that tell his life story. The Centre also organises tours throughout the city to trace the footsteps of Joyce and the colourful characters he created in his novel Ulysses.

One of Dublin’s most entertaining tours

What better way to explore Dublin than by combining two of the city’s most beloved pastimes: pubs and literature. Kicking off at the Duke Pub, the Dublin Literary Pub Crawl takes in a selection of Dublin’s finest traditional pubs and ale houses. You can get your first taste of authentic Guinness poured the way it should be or sample fine whiskey, while enjoying the antics of actors that bring Yates, Joyce and other famous Irish figures to life.

There’s a lot of craic (fun) to be had on these tours, with jokes and music adding to the atmosphere. This is a unique and wonderful way to get to know the city beyond the shops and mainstream attractions of Grafton Street and Temple Bar.
