Sandycove, Co. Dublin

Sandycove is an attractive affluent suburb of South County Dublin that is situated in between Dun Laoghaire and Dalkey. There is a nice seaside walk and a small beach here. The area is well known as being home to the James Joyce tower which is a Martello Tower - small fortresses built for defense against Napoleon's fleet - that was immortalised in Joyce's Ulysses as Leopold Bloom's starting place. In reality Joyce enjoyed a short stay there as a guest of Oliver St. John Gogarty. Today the tower holds a museum dedicated to all things Joycean. Curiously Joyce fled the tower after being shot at by his host.
