Dublin Spire, Dublin

#138 of 821 in Things to do in Dublin
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. A visit to Dublin Spire represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Dublin trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • I had a great stay at Spire Hostel. Very clean, friendly staff and nice room. Cozy feel in the kitchen. The location of the hostel is super
  • Seems good. Nice facility, friendly staff, good showers, great location, computer, tea and can you believe their lounge has the complete series of Thundercats!?
  • Great, clean hostel with friendly, knowledgeable staff. Awesome location right in the heart of Dublin with quick and easy access to public transportation.
  • Pretty good hostel - clean, nice enployees, decent breakfast. Drawback: you could hear people in the hallway quite load from the room I slept in. Also on the last night, the fire alarm went off in the middle of the night without a reason, which was very annoying. Nevertheless, I would recommend this hostel if you stay a couple of nights.
  • Great hostel with breakfast included. I liked the central location and the clean bathroom during my stay.
