Nora Barnacle House Museum will not be open for the 2014 season”

The Nora Barnacle House, in Galway City is the smallest museum in Ireland. Nora Barnacle was wife and muse to James Joyce and this was her tiny family home. She lived here with her mother and six younger siblings until she left Galway in 1904.

The Nora Barnacle House was built in the 1800s, and is the smallest house in the street, with accommodation consisting of two rooms and a tiny back yard. The ground floor room served as a kitchen, dining room and often a bedroom.

James Joyce first met his mother-in-law in this house. The building, now returned to its 1900s condition, is full of letters, photographs and other memorabilia illuminating the lives of the Joyces and the Barnacles. Guided tours are available in summer.

Note: Nora Barnacle House Museum will not be open for the 2014 season
