O'Connell Street, the centre of Dublin. the bottom of the Daniel O'Connell Monument is in the view.

A site of great significance in modern Irish history - this is the GPO building on O'Connell Street. It was here that the 1916 Easter Rising began and from where Pádraig Pearse proclaimed the establishment of the Irish Republic.

At the junction of O'Connell and Parnell Streets is the Charles Parnell Monument. He was an early campaigner for land rights and home rule for Ireland.

The Dublin Spire, sometimes called the Monument of Light is 120 metres high and was built in 2002 for reasons that are not clear.

This is the attractive Ha'penny Bridge which dates back to 1816.
