In my opinion, James Joyce is the best Irish writer ever. Since his statue is right on O'Connell Street, it would be a shame not to see it. Go get lost in Dublin's literature once more.

As a lover of Joyce, seeing his statue if you are in Dublin is an absolute must :) Easy to find and provides some good photo opportunities :)

In my opinion this is just a rusty statue to James Joyce while it also has a little bit of his history noted on it. Good with the tourists I suppose.

We took a walking tour and met at the corner of O'Connell Street and Earl Street which is where the statue is located. The Dublin Spire is opposite it. It is a popular tourist spot.

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.
