    I remember visiting the Martello Tower in Sandycove years and years ago. The whole set-up at the time was cringeworthy. Upstairs they had one of the rooms done up saying ‘this could be like how the room was then’ with this ceramic black panther in the fireplace.

    He had only spent one night in the place before running away. Aside from the literary connection which granted is big enough, the claim he lived there is tenuous.

    In fairness though they had loads of letters on display downstairs which was more interesting than the rest of the tower.
