Looks like an Irish harp. Certainly a unique design ideal which makes this bridge across the Liffey an oft-photographed sight in Dublin.

Really nice bridge, would like to see it lit up green at night time for a change, but very iconic and worth the walk

Beautiful architecture but can not believe it cost 60 millions euros to build it. Modern bridge very close to our hotel the Clayton and close to all amenities.

You can see this bridge from quite a distance & it’s great to see this modern architecture in amongst all the traditional bridges. Worth looking at if you’re wandering along the river Iffey - it’s a very busy area though, traffic wise

A modern design that is functional and tasteful at the same time. You cannot miss it while you are walking or driving in Dublin.

This bridge has a beautiful and majestic quality to it. It was designed to look like an Irish harp and it sure does. If you are near the river, or is definitely a nice stroll to see.

Once you are in the city centre you are very close to it, particularly if you are at O'Connell Bridge, which is the main bridge at O'Connell Street. There are River Liffey Tours but I'm not sure if it they under the Beckett... More
