In Joyce's footsteps

Number 17 Richmond Street North
Number 17 Richmond Street North

One of the several houses where James Joyce is supposed to have lived in his youth is Number 17 Richmond Street North, a cul-de-sac off the North Circular Road in Dublin 1.

At any rate, the census indicates the place has a long tradition as a boarding house. It's in flats at the moment but the agents say it could be converted readily enough into a family home or home and office.

It's a terraced redbrick house of 2,174 sq ft on three floors and a basement. There are two reception rooms on the ground floor and three bedrooms on the first floor. The second floor has an en-suite bedroom and kitchen/living room, and in the basement there's another bedroom, a kitchen and shower room.

There's a workshop at the back in the courtyard garden, which also gives access to a rear laneway. It's for sale for €500,000 with Gallagher Quigley (01) 818 3000.
