  • In the street or ' Conell on one side where there is a pedestrian street is this statue of James Joyce, which although it is visible there is many people who repair it by which you can make pictures quietly.

  • In my opinion, James Joyce is the best Irish writer ever. Since his statue is right on O'Connell Street, it would be a shame not to see it. Go get lost in Dublin's literature once more.  more »
  • No statues of native Duliňana city would complete. Is the "pedestal"-raised, a review might be, if it were placed directly on the sidewalk. On base often sit either weary tourists, or the homeless. We were lucky and there was no one;-) It's not so much miss the statue-is at the level of the Spire "mast" on the street of ' Connell street.

  • 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.
