Dublin Spire, Dublin

(1.8/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Not much to say. It is a large spire located near the General Post Office Building and the James Joyce Statue. Good for a meeting point while visiting Dublin as it can be seen from a distance.
