Places to See | Dublin, Ireland.
Originally built by the British as a defence against the expected Napoleonic invasion, this “Martello Tower” is now a popular historical site in Ireland and houses a small museum dedicated to the life and works of James Joyce. It was here that he spent six nights in 1904 and set the first chapter of the novel Ulysses.
Set in a peaceful location in Sandycove, eight miles south of Dublin City on the coast road, this place to see in Dublin is just a short walk from Dun Laoghaire.
Address: James Joyce Museum, Joyce Tower, Sandycove, Dublin Ireland
