River Liffey Take a ride along the River Liffey which divides the centre of Dublin and joins the Irish Sea. Although it is no longer used for trade, it continues to attract tourists who come to take a sail down Dublin’s most important river. On a nice day, many tourists and locals enjoy a walk along one of the wooden footbridges which are on both sides of the river. Four Courts, which is the main courts building and Custom House, originally used for collecting custom, are located on either side of the River Liffey and are two of the most important buildings in the city. There is also a statue of the Famine Memorial which is a reminder of the suffering in Ireland during the 19th century. The Point Theatre is a modern building and the biggest theatre in Ireland which is also located beside the river. It can host 8,500 people and shows all kinds of performances from ballets to rock concerts.
