At James Joyce Statue see a life-sized representation of Dublin's literary genius, the then-unpopular writer of now-famous Irish classics such as "Ulysses." Take your picture standing next to James Joyce's figure, looking critically into the distance. Find the statue on North Earl Street, a side street off of O'Connell Street.

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.

  • One of the great Irish authors is nicely represented by this simple yet charming statue. Fun photos by him  more »
  • Situated on Talbot Street an excellent likeness of James Joyce. Ideally sutuated for taking photos. Conveniently used as a meeting point.  more »
  • 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 »

  • 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.
