In Joyce's footsteps
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.
