I like night Photography, and love shot this modern architecture bridge. It is absolutely stunning to capture at night.

This bridge has a beautiful and majestic quality to it. It was designed to look like an Irish harp and it sure does. If you are near the river, or is definitely a nice stroll to see.

Architect Santiago Calatrava was the lead designer of the bridge over river Liffey. The Bridge was opened on 20 of december 2009. It looks like lyre bridge.

Happy to live close by, as it is an amazing sight. If you look both ways the view is great with the bridge on it. One of the main sights in Dublin.

One of my favourite bridges ever. Very attractive to look at from all angles. It's also a joy to watch when it opens for boats. It looks especially stunning at night. Beautiful engineering marvel.

As luck would have it, we were staying at a place near the bridge so we had a chance to view it on a daily basis. It is quite an extraordinary structure and a thing of beauty as well. It was designed by Calatrava from...More
