  • Its in the centre of the city, just beside the Spire. ( a 120 m tall "needle")
  • 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.
