James Joyce Tower and Museum
Joyce’s brief stay here inspired the opening of his great novel Ulysses, whose first chapter is set in this very tower. The gun platform with its panoramic view, and the living room inside the tower, are much as he described them in his book. Ulysses is a giant work of the imagination, both epic and hilarious, which immortalised Dublin and established Joyce as one of the greatest writers of the age.
Joyce’s relationship with Ireland and the church and his unrelenting dedication to his art make his own life as enthralling as his books. The museum’s collection includes letters, photographs, first and rate editions and personal possessions of Joyce, as well as items associated with the Dublin of Ulysses.
The Joyce Tower is one of a series of Martello Towers build 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 eight miles 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.
On behalf of the Nagle family who travelled from Australia, America, Great Britain and Ireland for our family reunion I would like to thank Milda Grigone and Irish Tourism for all they have done for us since we started to organise our family reunion well over 1 year ago.
Any time I sent Milda an email she got back to me straight away no problem to big to solve.
We found them to be very professional.
Iris Tourism made our reunion a memorable occasion which we will be forever grateful.
Many thanks to
Steve Royston and a very special thanks to Milda Grigone who I found to be a very easy person to communicate with her professionalism is to be commended.
We stayed at the Glenroyle Hotel in Maymooth for 4 nights.
The staff at the hotel could not do enough for us from the time we arrived to the time we left.
The rooms were perfect and very clean as you would expect.
On the Saturday night we had a gala night the function room had a very homely feel to it and the food was excellent.
The leisure centre kept the children occupied.
This is a hotel I would recommend to anyone having a family reunion many thanks to the Glenroyle Hotel.
Once again thanks to everyone who made this a very memorable occasion for the Nagle Family.
On behalf of the Nagle Family
