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.

It would be helpful to those of US who do not know what Joyce looked like if they could put a plaque on the bust so we would know who he was.

This statue in the center of Dublin is a life-size bronze the famous novelist. He is shown by sculptor Marjorie Fitzgibbon leaning on his cane. Casually, he has one hand in a pocket as he stands proud though crossed-legged. He appears somewhat arrogant, perhaps conceited, with his nose pointing upward. Nonetheless, it is a beautiful work of art, giving some class... More

It was great to finally match the pictures, the imaginative profile through the writing, and whatever is found on Google with the real statue. We started our walk from nearby and referred to the statue as our meeting point when we returned. We then made our way through the vibrant and buzzy city. Bridges, shops, pubs and the river accompanies... More

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.

As a James Joyce-fan, I had high hopes in finding this statue but I only did so near the ending of our journey, since it is so a shaming lyrics small.

James Joyce Statue is located in O'Connell street, famous for its malls and cute shops and restaurants. Interesting not only to take a pic of the statue but to visit the Writer museum which is very close

Didn't seem of much but was very nicely modeled. It's easy to miss - but after a quick look you're done :) It's in the shopping street so lots else to do here about...!

he statue of James Joyce is propably just famous because it is of him, and because it is in Dublin. It is not particularly extraordinary, but I guess you might as well take a look at it, if you pass by.

This life sized statue of the novelist and poet James Joyce stands proud on Earl Street, just off O'Connell Street. It is a great photo opportunity and is a fitting tribute to such a fine man. You really can't miss it if you are on O'Connell Street or even on one of the open top bus tours.
