The James Joyce Tower is a Martello tower situated on a cliff top in South County Dublin.

James Joyce Tower

James Joyce Tower

The tower is best known for featuring in the opening section of James Joyce’s Ulysses.

The tower today houses a museum which contains letters, photographs and personal possessions of Joyce.  It also contains rare editions of his work and items such as the original key of the tower, a plaster bust of Joyce by Milton Hebald and two plaster death masks of Joyce by the sculptor Paul Speck.

Visitors can see Joyce’s living room and access the roof up a narrow winding staircase.  From the roof there is a panoramic view across Dublin Bay where “Stately, plump Buck Mulligan came from the stairhead”.

Each June 16th Bloomsday is celebrated and the focus is on the tower where it began.
