Easy to see from most places in the city. I’m not sure if it’s significance but it was a good reference point.

Tall spire that stands well above everything in the city. Easy landmark. According to the website was build merely to signal the revitalization of the area.

I will say that this is huge and almost impossible to miss. This Spire is all Stainless Steel and it is 398 feet tall. It is a memorial to nothing and has no real meaning. It is one of the perfect spots to meet up...More

We use this as a place to meet up with friends. It's not that interesting but it's easy to spot. I wouldn't go specifically to see it.

The spire is huge!! It's a bit hard to look up on a sunny day as it is very shiney. It is another one of many arts found in Dublin, a great meeting point and many tours tell you the history and reasons behind the...More

This polished steel monument is really very cool. Fun to look into by day. If you're out in the area in the evening, you can watch the seabirds in their whiteness as they circle and play in the up-facing lights that shine on it -...More

Dubliners are very sensitive about the embellishments of their city. They love the 'Tart with the Cart' and 'The Box in the docks' but somehow Dubliners choose to ignore the Spire or the 'Underground Cathedral' as it was described by its designer. It commemorates nothing....More
