  • You walk on Talbot st., a nice shopping street and at the end it falls on this very pretty statue of James Joyce put there and sitting on its base, three cute old ladies who remake the world waiting to catch their breath. Very nice picture...

  • Another free Dublin destination. Read some Joyce before you visit Ireland--IMO everyone should read some Joyce anyway. Also: You could spend all day just hunting down statues around Dublin and it would be a good day.
  • Not to far from the GPO you should mark it as a thing to see as it is just situated beside the spire so you cant miss it.
  • The locals of Dublin will give you a good laugh when you ask them "what is his nickname now" :)
  • Iconic james joyce
  • Very central. Views of the spire.

Where to stay in Dublin

Dublin offers everything from luxury hotels to eclectic guesthouses. Explore over 1,000 years of history in the city on foot by staying at one of the hotels or hostels in the city center. The south side of the river has always been a popular place to stay, particularly near Temple University or the tourist nightlife center Temple Bar, but a new crop of attractive options has popped up on the north side as well. For more affordable accommodations, try a hostel or make your way toward St. Stephen's Green for a more comfortable stay at a mid-range hotel. If the artistic spirit of Dublin is what beckoned you, spend your holiday in a guesthouse near the creative Lower Gardiner Street.
