A home once occupied by Irish writer James Joyce might be of interest to creatives hoping to rent an inspirational space in Dublin.

The writer lived in the Victorian Rathmines home between the ages of two and five and it is said to be the place where he penned his first words.

Although hosting an important part of Irish literary history, the four bed room home has been extensively refurbished since Joyce’s residency and comes at a hefty price at €6000 per month.

The home is spread out over two storeys and boasts two reception rooms, a large light-filled kitchen and family area and views of a garden courtyard.

The home offers three bed-rooms, each with an ensuite. High ceilings and solid wood floors run throughout much of the house.

A separate apartment is housed in the garden which offers extra space for guests or indeed poses as a fourth bedroom.

The property is surrounded by high granite walls which ensure total privacy in busy Rathmines.

The luxurious property is available to rent through Haden Properties.
