  • 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.
  • Beautiful statue of a great man.
  • 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.
