  • The statue of James Joyce stands in the heart of Dublin City Centre in the immediate vicinity of the Dublin Spire. It was designed by the sculptor Marjorie Fitzgibbon in 1990. The work depicts the famous writer on a flat base bronze standing. Due to the Irish weather, he wears hat and coat. Casual, he has a hand in his pants pocket, he supports the other on a walking stick. The very faithfully crafted bronze statue is an eye-catcher and a popular destination for tourists. Therefore, it is here, always something going on. It's worth but James to come over. The statue of the idiosyncratic author liked us.

  • James Joyce is one of my heroes. Simply stunning and gifted writer. Simply brilliant. There is a statue of him across the street from The GPO. Worth a moment to pay homage to the man.

  • 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.
