This probaly not a stand alone attraction however combined with the many other sites and attractions of Dublin makes a wonderful day of sightseeing, something we didn't realise at first, this structure is actualy wider than it is long. Probaly a good trivia question.

This bridge comes off of O'Connell Street which is one the main shopping/eating streets. It joins the north of Dublin to the south of Dublin and you'll go over this bridge if you book onto any of the hop on and hop off bus tours.

Not necessarily spectacular but a nice view of the river. One of many crossings with exposure to some interesting characters. Bridge itself is OK. Worth a stop if in the area but not a bid destination.

Again, even though there are many bridges, this one was unique in design. One could find some unique things along the bridge. We were actually advised to keep walking and not o make eye contact with certain types. Once I got on the bridge I...More
