The river Liffey area concentrates a lot of people walking around. The bridges over the river are so different one of another, each one deserves to be seen. Over the sides of the river there are stores, restaurants, so many places to go.

Downtown Dublin is a truly delightful place for pub crawling, seeking out small or boutique restaurants, and just general sightseeing. Through it all, however, flows this peaceful river that offers beautiful views of government buildings and reflected nighttime lights and a path along which one...More

It was almost scary how fast the water was moving. I kinda didn't want my family to get too close! We walked over the HA Penny Bridge to get our pictures there. It's lit up at night. Impressive River!

The river, dividing Dublin right at its core, is nearby several interesting routes for tourists, so it's easy to spot.

The Liffey river is not the Thames, the Seine or the Tevere rivers. Yet, it is a landmark of Dublin. Overall, I do think it is worthy a visit, but be careful of pickpockets, because petty crimes are roaring in the city.
