    Liffey towards four courts

    This piccie looks down the Liffey towards the Four Courts and the millenium Bridge...you can see the boardwalks on the right hand side, keep walking on the left down the river and eventually this will bring you out near ChristChurch Cathedral and then onto Guinnesses !

    View Towards O Connell Bridge

    This piccie is taken looking down towards O Connell Bridge, you can just see the Custom House in the distance and I just love the coloured buildings along the River, they are now mainly hotels,pubs and businesses-but I still find them great looking buildings!

    RIVER LIFFEY

    River Liffey

    The River Liffey, much like the Seine in Paris, splits the city centre pretty much in two. Most of the cities attractions are to the south of the river and this is generally conceded to be the nicer, more affluent area but there is some good shopping as well as interesting sites to the north. Take a stroll along the fairly new boardwalk. Apparently the locals are a bit iffy about it since its just attached to the wall but it seemed pretty sturdy to me! :)

    The river has even been characterised in literature! James Joyce used the character Anna Livia in finnegans Wake. That name derives from the Irish "Abha Liphe" or "River of Liphe"

    Walk along the Liffey

    I stayed a bit outside the city center, close to Heuston station, so if I wanted a bit of the action I had to walk for about 20 minutes to the city center. During my brief stay, I walked about 10 times along the Liffey, on several times of the day. On Sunday, it was a very calm walk, where i could enjoy the water, the bridges and people strolling by. During rush hours on a weekday it was a completely different walk.
    My walks on the Liffey are one of the best memories of my Dublin trip!

    Liffey Boardwalk near Bachelor's Walk

    The Boardwalk runs along the North bank of the Liffey and is a promenade-like walk with benches and some small coffee-stalls. I quite enjoy strolling along there on a nice sunny day – but there again on the rare Irish nice sunny days you would enjoy strolling almost anywhere. On any day, sunny or not, the Boardwalk is definitely preferable to walking on the main road’s sidewalk right next to the city centre traffic

    I love the fairly new boardwalks along the Liffey, superb in the summer and really atmospheric at night when the whole city is lit up!

    Liffey River view

    From the city center till close to Phoenix Park, it offers very beautifull views over the river and the city architecture.
    And if you are lucky to do it in a sunny day, the better.
