O'Connell Street

WALK THE FAMOUS DUBLIN STREET TO FEEL LIKE A LOCAL

O’Connell Street is the main thoroughfare of Dublin, standing north of Trinity College over the River Liffey. This large boulevard is also the widest street in Dublin.

Flanked on both sides with enough shops, cafés and restaurants to entertain you for an afternoon, the centre is dotted with statues. From north to south, you’ll find the Parnell Monument and the O’Connell Statue, among many others.

Let’s not forget the iconic Spire! You won’t miss it walking along O’Connell Street as the striking monument stands tall at 120 metres (394 feet). The stainless-steel needle is modern offering an interesting juxtaposition with the nearby Greek revival architecture.

A highlight to visit along the street is the historic General Post Office. Standing across from the Spire, you can admire the 1800s building and its impressive portico.

Inside, send a postcard home or visit the GPO Witness History Museum. The interactive museum will immerse you in modern Irish history from the late 19th century to today.

Chances are you will end up on this main avenue one way or another. Many buses, including tour buses and the airport buses, as well as the Dublin Luas (tram) pass along this street. It’s a good place to disembark and wander around if you have the time.
