Another Busy Street

Here you have another busy street in Dublin. On this street you can see the Spire which is massive. This street also houses the post office. Good street full of history.

This is basically the heart of the city, the street connects north and south Dublin, crossing over O'Connell bridge. There are plenty of shops, restaurants and people walking about. You can also see the famous spire on this street.

Sadly the roadworks made this road a tad manic when i was there. Loads of shops, bars and restaurants make this a road worth visiting, plus of course, a close up view of 'The Stiffy by the Liffy'!!!!

Our guide told us fascinating stories about what she meant: houses of prostitution, drug... More

When we arrived in the City the airport bus stopped in O'Connell Street. This is the main transport stop for most of the buses other than the bus terminal.
