The Spire

The Spire of Dublin, a 120 metre high landmark in the heart of Dublin City, was unveiled in 2002.

The huge, striking, and innovative monument stands in the middle of O’Connell Street just across from the famous General Post Office. During daylight, the light of Ireland’s sky over Dublin, the streetscape and its people is softly reflected in the stainless steel surface of the Spire.

From its base up to about 10m, the stainless steel is partially polished in an abstract design to provide a slightly higher reflective surface than the remainder of the Spire.
