The James Joyce Tower, in Sandycove, was one of a series of Martello towers built to withstand an invasion by Napoleon and now holds a museum devoted to the life and works of James Joyce, who made the tower the setting for the first chapter of his masterpiece, Ulysses.
Beautifully located 13km south of Dublin on the coast road, this tower is the perfect setting for a museum dedicated to Joyce, a writer of international renown who remains, world-wide, the writer most associated with Dublin.
Joyce's brief stay here inspired the opening of his great novel Ulysses. The gun platform with its panoramic view and the living room inside the tower are much as he described them in his book.
The museum's collection includes letters, photographs, first and rare editions and personal possessions of Joyce, as well as items associated with the Dublin of Ulysses.
There is NO admission charge.
