O'Connell Bridge, Dublin

#235 of 821 in Things to do in Dublin
Walk across a piece of beloved history at O'Connell Bridge, a bridge spanning the River Liffey. Designed by James Gandon and built between 1791 and 1794, the structure connects O'Connell Street to D'Olier Street, Westmoreland Street, and the south quays. As a result, business and commercial life moved to surround this bridge, and masses of people used this bridge every day. It gradually was built up to accommodate the usage; today, seen from above, it is as wide as it is long. Be careful when you visit, as pickpockets tend to frequent the area. Make O'Connell Bridge a part of your Dublin vacation plans using our Dublin holiday planner.

  • This particular bridge is roughly 200 years old. Nothing to impressive about it. But its one way to get across the Liffey River in Dublin.  more »
  • Once the bridges of Dublin. Perhaps the most classical and traditional. This not only. Beautiful, allows good views over the river.
