Spire of Dublín

+31

18 reviews of Spire of Dublín

The heart of the city

The Spire of Dublin is a work of art made of steel, like a needle jutting into the sky in the Irish capital. The tower is 120 meters high, making it the highest artistic sculpture in the world. The Spire was designed by the architecture firm Ian Ritchie to be elegant and simple. Construction began in 2002, and was more complicated than anticipated (due to the laws of the city), but opened in 2003. The sculpture is part of the renovation of the street in 1999 to regenerate the area. Nelson's Column was once here but it was destroyed by and IRA bombing. Since then, the street hasn't been the same, so they wanted to renew it and give it a new life.

It’s an monument right on the middle of a very busy street

Good

The spire is a nice thing to see but it’s not something you have to plan before.

When you walk through the center of Dublin just go there, see, and take some pictures, that’s good enough for it!

The Spire seems like the center of this...

Excellent

The Spire seems like the center of this fascinating city, surrounded by millions of tourist staring at the breathtaking height and majesty of it. A really excellent street and point of the city... a clue for tourists and a symbol for Irish people.
