New Joyce Tower Website

By | Museum | No Comments

New Website now Live!!

I am happy to announce that the new website is now live. It has been a long time coming but, I hope you will agree as you try it out, that it looks fantastic and will prove a great tool in attracting visitors to our wonderful tower.
The site is designed to be clean, modern and user-friendly and can be accessed through all gadgets (phones, tablets, Laptops and PCs) allowing potential visitors to plan in advance or to get information on the go.
Visitors are welcomed to the site via a homepage slide show created from wonderful photos of the tower taken by Bill Hastings. These photos, in their original colour, can also be seen in the gallery section – thanks Bill!
The new site includes all the key information which might be required by individuals and groups coming to the tower. It gives a taste of what makes our tower such a magical place with well organised pages and informative audio and video pieces.
The site allows us to highlight key events at the tower and it also provides the opportunity for people to become more involved in supporting us by joining the Friends of Joyce Tower Society.
There are also several links to local tourist related sites and to sites of interest to fans of Joyce.
The new site will, I believe, become a reference point for volunteers and make a visit to the James Joyce Tower & Museum even more enjoyable for those who like to plan ahead or review at leisure.
Our sincere thanks are due to Éamon Sweeney who has been working on this project for the past year and to Helen Colgan who assisted him in bringing it to fruition.
A new site, when it first goes live, can have a few glitches and your feedback regarding any aspect of the sites performance (ability to search, speed of page loading, links etc.) would be gratefully accepted.
Don’t forget to share the site link on your Facebook or Twitter account – everything helps.

All the best and Happy Bloomsday,Joyce
