One of the most famous Irish authors is James Joyce. Some may have had the doubtful experience of having read into “Ulysses“ or “Finnegan’s Wake“. Joyce is known for having influenced 20th century literature as well is for his ribald humour. Probably he would like the nickname of his statue: “The prick with the stick”. It is located in the North Earl Street, close to O’Connell Street. I have seen a James Joyce statue impersonator on both of my visits in Dublin.

Address: 2 Earl Street North, Dublin 1
Directions: Earl Street, close to O'Connell street

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
