The Samual Becket bridge is a nicel;y designed bridge. being a Dutchman, I see the resemblence with the famous bridge in Rotterdam. Certainly worthwhile to take a moment and enjoy this marking point in Dublin

Looks like an Irish harp. Certainly a unique design ideal which makes this bridge across the Liffey an oft-photographed sight in Dublin.

Really nice bridge, would like to see it lit up green at night time for a change, but very iconic and worth the walk

Beautiful architecture but can not believe it cost 60 millions euros to build it. Modern bridge very close to our hotel the Clayton and close to all amenities.

You can see this bridge from quite a distance & it’s great to see this modern architecture in amongst all the traditional bridges. Worth looking at if you’re wandering along the river Iffey - it’s a very busy area though, traffic wise

A modern design that is functional and tasteful at the same time. You cannot miss it while you are walking or driving in Dublin.

I like night Photography, and love shot this modern architecture bridge. It is absolutely stunning to capture at night.
