Nora Barnacle and James Joyce

The hotel may be long gone, but the name is still preserved on the gable end. It was in this hotel that Nora Barnacle worked  as a chamber maid and just outside, on Nassau street, where she met James Joyce. Their first date on 16 June would be immortalised in the novel Ulysses.
