It's very easy to spot and would be a good meeting spot for groups of tourists. It is also an excellent pin point to popular shopping streets and social spots close by.

360 foot plain silver needle built to celebrate the millennium. Popular meeting point especially for the free walking tours. Located in O’Connell street. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

Easy to see from most places in the city. I’m not sure if it’s significance but it was a good reference point.
