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.

You'll end up passing that way eventually and if you do, take some time to enjoy the view of Dublin and the River Liffey.
