What to expect?

The Docklands is a neighbourhood in Dublin undergoing a major redevelopment. This docklands area stretches from the Talbot Memorial Bridge to the mouth of the River Liffey. A place to explore absolutely: it must be said that Dublin has largely renovated these former port districts. The Docklands now contain many modern, cultural and tourist buildings. Preferably to be explored on foot!

A vast complex in full renewal!

The Dublin Docklands are now an important part of the city’s life. It is home to public buildings, tourist and cultural attractions, as well as comfortable and modern office and residential facilities.

Among the notable places, we recommend you to discover :

  • The Custom House, a building built in 1791 which today houses the Irish Department of the Environment within its walls.
    the Famine Memorial: a group of sculptures located in the open air, on the docks. The work pays homage to the Irish victims of the Great Famine. These gut-wrenching sculptures are signed by Dublin artist Rowan Gillepsie.
  • The Sean O’Casey Bridge: a pedestrian bridge across the Liffey River. Named after the Irish writer, the bridge connects City Quay and the neighbourhood on the south bank of the Liffey and Custom House Quay to the north.
  • The Jeanie Johnston Tall Ship: This is a replica of an old three-master from 1847, which brought many Irish emigrants to the United States during the Irish Famine. The ship is fully open to visitors and has been converted into a floating museum. A fascinating place, which will allow you to learn more about the Irish Famine and emigration.
  • The Samuel Beckett Bridge : it is without hesitation the most beautiful bridge in Dublin ! It connects North Wall Quay in the north to Sir John Rogerson’s Quay in the south. Magnificent, this cable-stayed bridge is shaped like a harp, the symbol of Ireland! A true architectural marvel of which Dubliners are very proud!
  • The Royal Canal: this canal is an opportunity to walk along the Liffey River.
  • the Dublin Convention Centre: this is an ultra-modern conference centre! The architecture of the sloping building with an atrium makes it a symbol of Dublin’s modernity!
  • the O2: this is the capital’s concert hall! Capable of accommodating up to 14,500 people, the venue has already welcomed great artists such as U2!
