What To See Along The River Liffey, Dublin
Are you ready to take a walk along the River Liffey?
You can start this walk anywhere between Heuston Station and Samuel Beckett Bridge.
Samuel Beckett Bridge looks like a harp: the national symbol of Ireland. Start walking upstream.
The Jeanie Johnston was a famine ship. You can visit it to learn more about Irish emigration.
You’ll also find the Epic Museum...
...and the famine memorial nearby.
The Customs Building, quite far from the modern port, now houses local government.
O’Connell Street is the Main Street of Dublin.
If you head north up the road, you’ll find the Spire and the General Post Office here.
On the south side, you’ll find Trinity College and Grafton Street.
Let’s keep walking up stream. The next bridge is the HaPenny Bridge — our favourite.
Crossing the bridge used to cost a half penny.
Head through this cute little arch to get to Temple Bar.
As you continue upstream, Christchurch cathedral will be on your left.
The Guinness Brewery dominates the south side from here.
End your walk at Phoenix Park — the largest inner city park in Europe. You will find the zoo here!
You can walk back into town, or take a bus or Luas (tram).
We hope you enjoyed taking this river walk with us.
