If nothing else use this as a meeting place for tourist. It is actually called the Millennium Spire. It is a visible landmark in Dublin

Until the 1960s Nelson's Pillar was the heart of Dublin, a meeting point for people only rivalled, perhaps, by Clery's Clock. Sadly it was blown up in 1966. An open competition was held to find something to replace it - the result was this enormous...More

The Spire is in the centre of Dublin, near the General Post Office (GPO) in O'Connell Street. It's said to be the world's tallest sculpture. This stainless steel spire is 121 meters (100 yards) tall. No-one is quite sure of its meaning (if any) but...More

It was built of 6 separate sections which were manufactured elsewhere and assembled on site. It's around 120 metres high and built of stainless steel. It's also called the Monument of Light
