Capturing the Capital – Introducing the O’Connell Tower

198 steps, comprised of a wrought iron spiral staircase, with hand-carved carved wooden steps, 6 landing platforms, exhibits, and four windows at the top affording magnificent views of Dublin, its surrounding counties and the Irish Sea. The Tower is open to visitors daily and bookings can be made online.

O’Connell Tower: Open daily from 10:00 to 17:00

The Restoration Project

In 1971, disaster struck when a large bomb exploded at the base of the tower. In 2016 work began with the reinstatement of the staircase that once graced the tower. Its completion in April 2018 was an achievement in its own right using the original plans and traditional methods employed by those who first constructed it.
