A fun short stop spot in the middle of the shopping centre. A pleasant surprise, as he melts away in the scenery. With a look on his like he belongs there, the statue makes an honourable tribute to the great author.

This is a nice statue to one of Ireland's most famous sons, writer of the famous novel Ulysses amongst many other works.

I think everyone should stop by this entertaining statue of James Joyce, it is right off O'Connell street at Earl Street. The statue is not your typical granite statue but one that invites you to be entertained.

Another statue that relates to Ireland's history. A great photo opportunity and meeting point. You can't miss it.

(About Homers' The Odyssey) then it's a thrill to run across this statue of the Great James Joyce. Probably even more of a thrill for a super literate fan. Impress your friends by revealing that Mr. Joyce's middle name is "Augustine Aloysius".
