Samuel Beckett Bridge

The Samuel Beckett Bridge represents one of the pinnacles of architectural design in Dublin, giving its docklands a truly modern edge; a lengthy spar offering a beautiful counterpoint to the industrial and commercial buildings which comprise the area. Named for the great Irish writer Samuel Beckett, the bridge greets those arriving in Dublin by ferry with an image evocative of its national symbolism – the cables which suspend the structure are designed to offer the impression of a harp, which is Ireland’s national symbol.

Many thousands of residents and visitors to Ireland walk upon the bridge on a daily basis, with many stopping as they cross to soak in the delightful views it affords into both Dublin’s industrial heartland and shipping channels, and the splendid marriage of the traditional and the modern which constitutes the Irish capital’s city centre.
