Dublin Spire, Dublin

#19 of 111 in Sightseeing in Dublin
Landmark Tourist Spot
The very first attraction you spot when you visit Dublin will likely be Dublin Spire, a huge, stainless-steel monument reaching 121.2 m (398 ft) in height. Ian Ritchie Architects' simple and elegant monument looks like someone stuck a giant pin in the city. Although the monument seems to disappear in the sky at dusk, lights at the bottom and top of the pin are illuminated at night. The spire does not have an observation deck, but visitors can snap great pictures from O'Connell Street. Our Dublin trip itinerary planner makes visiting Dublin Spire and other Dublin attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Where to stay in Dublin

Dublin offers everything from luxury hotels to eclectic guesthouses. Explore over 1,000 years of history in the city on foot by staying at one of the hotels or hostels in the city center. The south side of the river has always been a popular place to stay, particularly near Temple University or the tourist nightlife center Temple Bar, but a new crop of attractive options has popped up on the north side as well. For more affordable accommodations, try a hostel or make your way toward St. Stephen's Green for a more comfortable stay at a mid-range hotel. If the artistic spirit of Dublin is what beckoned you, spend your holiday in a guesthouse near the creative Lower Gardiner Street.

  • Aside from providing a recognizable landmark to serve as a meeting place for tours, etc, I'm not sure why it is there. You can't climb it, you can't go into it, it isn't particularly attractive and it...  more »

  • The Dublin Spire is a part of the fabric of the city. It is interesting how tall and thin it is and is well worth a quick glance. Do not go out of your way as it is plenty clear as you walk along O'Co...  more »
