Owner description: This main bridge spanning the Liffey River is wider than it is long.
Reviewed 10 September 2017 via mobile

O'Connell Bridge, formerly the Carlisle Bridge, links Dublin's north and south sides across the River Liffey at the southern end of O'Connell Street. It is a perfect square with classical railings and arches.
It is a very, very busy thoroughfare with both vehicles and pedestrians. Along the sides you have some stalls but by and large it has little to do bar stop and gaze up and down the river.
Great place for photos, especially facing West looking towards the Ha'penny Bridge and Merchants Arch.
Well worth a stop for the photos. Difficult to avoid to be honest if you are in the O'Connell Street area.

O'Connell is one of the major bridges that crosses the River Liffey. The bridge is steeped in history. It is a great place for photographs, especially at night when the lights are shining in this beautiful capital city.

There is a river called luffy river which divided the Dublin city center into two parts and bridges play an important role that connected two sides

O Connell bridge is the main bridge and it is also the biggest one the view on the bridge is nice

This bridge spans the Liffey and is always busy connecting the north with the south side along O'Connell street and with O'Connell Statue overlooking it.

Not quite sure what to say. This bridge divides the north and the south in Dublin with nice views of water, architecture and people watching. Some very strange people, I may add.
