    The cause of much controversy and one of Dublin's perpetual debates. The Spire is a focal point for the city centre. Personally, I'm a fan. The Spire is elegant, huge and not too intrusive. Love it!

    It points in 2 directions, up and down. But mostly up. Very handy if you get confused. It's also the site of St. Patrick's final battle with the snakes. The skeleton is housed in the transparent base

    The Spire is a popular meeting point. I enjoyed seeing it change in different lights, particularly at night.

    I dare you to miss it. You can see it from far far away. When its raining the falling water makes a river down the spire

    Massive pole in the middle of the city on the north side mainly helping with navigation. In the middle of a pedestrian street full of stores

    Tallest of Dublin's landmarks. A lot of buses stop here. You can reach from airport via Airlink 747 which accepts visitor leap card and then take another bus to your destination e.g. 46A to dbltree.

    The actual official name of The Spire is the Monument of Light- fact. It's also known locally as Bertie's prick!
