After a summer off, the James Joyce Tower in Sandycove, south Dublin, has opened for business once again.
Offering a devoted museum of Joyce`s life and works, the popular tourist attraction was closed for most of the summer months due to staffing problems.
But thanks to a volunteer scheme, the museum is finally back open, boasting a wide collection relating to James Joyce`s life and career, including letters, photographs, first and rare editions and personal possessions of Joyce himself.
Considered one of the most influential writers in the modernist avant-garde of the early 20th century, James Joyce was said to be inspired by the tower for the opening of his well-known novel Ulysses, which was written in 1922.
Just one of many cultural institutions dotted around the Irish capital, it could represent a fantastic educational day out whilst enjoying a European break in one of the fine Dublin hotels
