I just love the Harp Bridge. We could see it out the window of our accommodation and looked at it every morning and night. It is only lit for special occasions, but I think they should have it lit, just because! I love it :)...More
The bridge has a unique look and is nice to see from a distance - you will likely encounter it during your time in Dublin if you walk along the liffey - along with the Jeanie Johnstron, ha'penny bridge, EPIC and more. It's interesting to...More

A very modern bridge designed by Calatrava and placed at the Docklands area in 2009 (Dublin City's newest bridge)! We saw it from the bus on our way to Glendalough (tour) and managed to take a photo and a short video.

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 Bridge - I doubt it actually. Be aware if you are taking a River Liffey tour that the river is tidal, and sometimes the watercraft has to cut short its tour as it is not able to go under some of the other bridges. I know this because it happened to use a few years ago. Enjoy your trip to Dublin, there is so much to see - and you will love the majesty of the Beckett Bridge!
