On our third day in Dublin, Timmy and I went to visit the Famine Ship (post to come), on our way there we stopped to admire the Samuel Beckett Bridge which is shaped like a harp.
The bridge can swing open when any ships need to pass through; I believe that has only been used a couple times. You can view a video of the bridge opening here. I wish that we had visited the bridge at sunrise or sunset, because judging by this photo it looks even more beautiful then.

I call the building on the far left R2D2.
This is the mechanics for a different bridge near the Samuel Beckett bridge.
The temperture in Dublin usually only gets up to the mid-60s (Fahrenheit), so, the locals were really enjoying the weather being in the mid-70s while we were there; it was the hottest it has been there in seven years. Most of the guys swimming were in their underwear or regular shorts.
