1. James Joyce Pub Award Marker
Inscription.  

This pub has been granted the
James Joyce Pub Award
for being an authentic Irish pub

'A good puzzle would be to cross Ireland
without passing a pub.' Ulysses

James Joyce identified and described the
characteristic ambienc of the Irish pub
so successfully that the characters in Ulysses
may be fictional, but they are based on a
multitude of living beings, characters who
Joyce found in pubs just like this one.
This establishment remains an outstanding
example of the tradition which
Joyce immortalized in his works and is
an authentic Irish pub which remains
a genuineness of atmosphere,
friendliness and
presence of good company.

James Joyce [signature]
