    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If your a fan of James Joyce then this is the place to go. The tower was orginally built in 1804. It now houses the Joyce Museum and contains first editions of most of Joyces work. The cost to enter the museum is €2.60. This statue of James Joyce is across the road from the GPO in O'Connell street.

    This Martello tower was a temporary home to James Joyce, and is the setting for the first chapter of Joyce's great novel, Ulysses, described pretty much as you will see it today. The gun platform has extroadinary views. You can see rare editions of Joyce's work, letters, photo's and perseon possessions.
