Downtown Dublin is a truly delightful place for pub crawling, seeking out small or boutique restaurants, and just general sightseeing. Through it all, however, flows this peaceful river that offers beautiful views of government buildings and reflected nighttime lights and a path along which one...More

It was almost scary how fast the water was moving. I kinda didn't want my family to get too close! We walked over the HA Penny Bridge to get our pictures there. It's lit up at night. Impressive River!

The river, dividing Dublin right at its core, is nearby several interesting routes for tourists, so it's easy to spot.

This is an iconic river that runs through the heart of the city. I am sure there are great many secrets Spinny it’s waters because it has cut through the city the entire time it is been there. Interesting walk.

The Liffey river is not the Thames, the Seine or the Tevere rivers. Yet, it is a landmark of Dublin. Overall, I do think it is worthy a visit, but be careful of pickpockets, because petty crimes are roaring in the city.

The river is an integral part of the city, you really can’t miss it or several of the lovely bridges over it! Wonderfully lit at night.

River Liffey runs through Dublin, separating the city in two. Plenty of bridges crossing it, some just for pedestrians, others for both cars and pedestrians.
