  • The statue of James Joyce is inevitable if you are in Dublin as it is located near O'Connell st. Really very beautiful and similar to the writer of the ' 900 we can only stop a few minutes in his memory.

  • It would be helpful to those of US who do not know what Joyce looked like if they could put a plaque on the bust so we would know who he was.

  • Really nice statue! Must take a pic with it if you're walking along the streets of Dublin mall!
  • Beautiful statue, well worth the look
  • James Joyce wrote many, to some incomprehensible, books like Dubliners, Portrait of the Artist and Ulysses.
  • There are better likenesses of Joyce, but most show him po-faced and serious. James has wit, charm and humour and the pose reflects this. The Talbot Street location makes sense as Bloom comes rushing up Talbot Street in Ulysses. Its base is also a handy emergency seat, and a good place to steady a camera when taking a photograph of the Spire.
  • Beautiful statue of a great man.
