The colors of Dublin

Dublin is a beautiful city and always different. From the bridge you can see, when the sun is low, the wonderful and warm colors of the city.

Crossing this bridge takes you from the exclusive shopping streets to the ones where the locals shop, like Henry St. Make your journey on foot via Temple Bar.

This is an old and historic bridge, full of quaint charm, as it rises above the river allowing pedestrians to cross over.

There are so many bridges in downtown Dublin - yet this has the most history! Don't place locks on the bridge as they will be cut off. Light up at night, and a great way to get to the Temple Bar area - easy landmark to find if you are taking the bus!

I lived around there for a few years. It's certainly worth for pictures and a small walk. You'll get a nice view of the river and certainly a nice feeling when the sun is up! It connects the North side of the river 'directly' to Temple square.

Old bridge in which you had to pay half penny to go from one place of the river to the other. I love going along it.

There must be close to ten bridges across the Liffy River in central Dublin ...they are all nice, this one a bit better than the others. Great photos especially at sunset

A must see and also you must cross. A part of the history of the city, a bridge with history and named accordingly.

Tourist-y, but a cute little bridge across the Liffey. Every tourist has a picture from this bridge.
