I just happened past it and stopped for a quick photo and to read the plaque at the base. If you're a Joyce fan...you'll want to find it and stop by!

If so, go there to see the statue. Go further and see the James Joyce Center. The statue is located just next to The Spire monument which is unique by its structure and it is also quite interesting to be seen.

In my opinion, James Joyce is the best Irish writer ever. Since his statue is right on O'Connell Street, it would be a shame not to see it. Go get lost in Dublin's literature once more.
