We did a walking tour all over Dublin, Ireland. The O’Connel bridge is one of the older bridges, but it was fun to walk on both sides of the city. I would recommend doing a walking tour of this city.

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.

Nice walk by water. Nothing special but a must part of Dublin to pass by. It’s more fun in the summer to take a boat trip.

Got dropped off here by coach the morning we arrived, nice looking bridge spanning the river liffey. It gets lit up at night, if you're taking a walk through the city after dark you could get some nice pics.

There are beautiful view from the bridge, easy to walk around the city with lots to do! This city is busy, much like Boston, if you would like something a little less, try a trip to Galway.

Spanning the River Liffey, O'Connell Bridge connects O'Connell Street with D'Olier Street, Westmoreland Street and the south quays. Built in the 1700s and named the Carlisle Bridge it was renamed in the late 1800s as O'Connell Bridge after Irish nationalst leader Daniel O'Connell.

As I walked over this crowded beautiful bridge, I felt my ancestors with me. Dublin is a fascinating, lively city both on the North and South of the Liffey. Going back soon!!!
