  • We took a walking tour and met at the corner of O'Connell Street and Earl Street which is where the statue is located. The Dublin Spire is opposite it. It is a popular tourist spot. 
  • The statue of James Joyce is certainly among the most beautiful and interesting places in Dublin, via passing there you can take a few minutes! The city is full of statues: some very nice, much more evocative or impressive ... This has nothing special ... even è...ma not beautiful or ugly!

  • I was glad to visit this statue of James Joyce and have my photo taken beside it. It is in a very easy to find location.

  • 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.
