Views from the Sean O'Casey bridge, Dublin

Of all the Liffey Bridges, I think the views from the Sean O'Casey bridge are particularly stunning -- and more so at night than at any other time.

While I'm the first to admit I'm no photographer, I wanted to share these two photos I took one evening this week from the bridge. To one side we have the Custom House (to the right, below) and the triangle-topped towers of the Ulster Bank building (to the left).

And to the other side, the lights of the Dublin Convention Centre (on the left), the big wheel, the Samuel Beckett bridge and, if you look closely, that very dark ship to the foreground on the left is the Jeanie Johnston Famine Ship.

Pretty, isn't it? What's your favourite Dublin view?

Great pics Emma, love the view from Sean O'Casey Bridge too.

I think I take Dublin for granted sometimes but lately I've rediscovered my love of St Patrick's Cathedral and Christ Church Cathedral, both gorgeous buildings.

Zoe, you definitely have to visit! I know I'm biased, but Dublin is a great city.

Paula, I know what you mean, I think we always take the city where we live a little bit for granted...

@July Girl Thank you, but it's easy when you have a view like that - just point and click!
