This bridge spans the Liffey and is always busy connecting the north with the south side along O'Connell street and with O'Connell Statue overlooking it.

Not quite sure what to say. This bridge divides the north and the south in Dublin with nice views of water, architecture and people watching. Some very strange people, I may add.

I didn't realize that this was a touristy spot when walking from the bus station into the southern part of Dublin across the river. It is very scenic in an urban way. There are lots of cool buildings to look at while walking.

Main bridge of Laffey river in Dublin. Historical landmark. many things have happened there. Today, a bit of roadwork gets in the way but still a "don't miss place". Interesting architecture and details.

This is a bridge, folks. You know, where a road meets some water. You can stand on it and look up and down the water. Or look down. There's some water. That's what you get with a bridge.

I have always loved O'Connell Bridge for its design and its view on the Liffey. Then why am I giving only 3 stars? Because this is the fair balance between the 5 stars the bridge should deserve and the 1 star experience of my friend...More

You would never want to get split up from your travelling companions on this busy bridge as everybody moves at a fast pace which makes it hard to appreciate this bridge,

This bridge is well worth a look, the architecture is amazing. I can't believe it's over 200 years old and still going strong.
