    It's so big, foreigners use it to meet and trade goods, such as food, alcohol, medicines that can't be sold in Ireland without prescription...

    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
