O'Connell Bridge, Dublin

(2.6/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Beautiful piece of architecture. Must-see in Dublin. Well worth working into a city tour walk! Love it!

  • I got to see and cross this bridge which, in my opinion, has nothing that can ensure that it is recalled. Architecturally it is anonymous and therefore not worth a visit. Council to see it only if you are forced to cross it, otherwise it's not worth to go for it.
