Jump to navigation Jump to search

Rialto is a suburb of Dublin, situated on the city's southside. It is located along part of the abandoned section of the Grand Canal that stretches from Suir Bridge to James Street Basin, which was built to serve the Guinness Brewery. This section of the canal was the original (not the extension) but closed down in 1976.

Dublin's Rialto has also its own Rialto Bridge which spans the abandoned portion of the Grand Canal.


The abandoned portion of the canal is now used for the Luas Red Line from The Point to Tallaght. Near the Rialto Bridge is the Luas stop 'Rialto' which serves the area. Buses also serve the area.
