Once you are in the city centre you are very close to it, particularly if you are at O'Connell Bridge, which is the main bridge at O'Connell Street. There are River Liffey Tours but I'm not sure if it they under the Beckett Bridge - I doubt it actually. Be aware if you are taking a River Liffey tour that the river is tidal, and sometimes the watercraft has to cut short its tour as it is not able to go under some of the other bridges. I know this because it happened to use a few years ago. Enjoy your trip to Dublin, there is so much to see - and you will love the majesty of the Beckett Bridge!
