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
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

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!
