You can see this bridge from quite a distance & it’s great to see this modern architecture in amongst all the traditional bridges. Worth looking at if you’re wandering along the river Iffey - it’s a very busy area though, traffic wise

My brother and I walked out of our way to get a good view of the Samuel Beckett Bridge. It's just stunning. Designed to look a like a harp, it sure does. Photos don't do it justice.

A modern design that is functional and tasteful at the same time. You cannot miss it while you are walking or driving in Dublin.

This bridge has a beautiful and majestic quality to it. It was designed to look like an Irish harp and it sure does. If you are near the river, or is definitely a nice stroll to see.

Architect Santiago Calatrava was the lead designer of the bridge over river Liffey. The Bridge was opened on 20 of december 2009. It looks like lyre bridge.

I walked the bridge to each side of the river. No big deal, except you walk on the left like they drive. Its a pretty structure, but I would not go out of my way to see it

Happy to live close by, as it is an amazing sight. If you look both ways the view is great with the bridge on it. One of the main sights in Dublin.

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... More
