It´s one of the iconic places in Dublin not to be missed. A real gem for fans of modern architecture.

The suspension bridge is designed to look like an irish harp over the water. It's really neat to walk over in either direction (to / from the conference center, the theater, or even to have drinks at the ferryman pub). Apparently it also opens to let larger ships through - though I've never seen it actually do this (I'm sure it's a site to see)!

A nice place to enjoy a vista of the city from the river. It is pleasant to watch the traffic on the Liffey.

Commissioned by Dublin City Council, the cable stayed Samuel Beckett Bridge is one of the two bridges designed by Calatrava and the other being the James Joyce Bridge completed in 2003. Neat views from either side. The bridge can also move 90 degrees on the horizontal in order to let water craft navigate the river.
