A nice place for a hike or some sightseeing. There are some nice bridges and old buildings along this river.

Lippy is not so big river, but flowing in the heart of the city. Very nice view in river side. You can enjoy walking tour around the river and there are lots of bridges over the river. Worth enough to spend evening here.

We drove along one side of the river through Dublin and crossed the river five times -- and learned so much about this important waterway and about Dublin itself.

My husband and i travelled to Ireland in June 2015. The River Liffey runs through the centre of Dublin making the city so attractive with its many bridges, vehicular & pedestrian. We stayed in a B 'n' B right at the entrance to one of the the new modern bridges. The loveliest bridge of all, in my opinion, is the... More
