An iconic part of Cork. The shakey bridge is a small pedestrian suspension bridge that I can remember being fascinated with as a child!

We walked on this bridge on our way to the Cork City Gaol (jail). It's kind of shaky but very old and makes for a beautiful walk.

Our children enjoyed walking on this bridge, which is slightly bouncy. It is at the corner of Fitzgerald's park in Cork city.

Yes, its a small footbridge and yes we walked it to get over the river, but I wouldn't recommend a trip just to see it.

I always loved passing here as a kid as my surname is daly and it still gives me a giggle to jump across it . I would jump off it now though! It's not worth a detour to visit but definitely go on the way to or from fitzgeralds park or the mardyke

There's nothing really spectacular about this bridge. It is old for one and a bit shaky. However at northern end of the bridge there's a real bad smell of urine.

Maybe not in the category of Kissing the Blarney Stone, or Ringing the Shandon Bells, but crossing "De Shaky Bridge" (and making it shake) is very much a Cork thing to do. If crossing from south to north, why not keep going and visit Cork Gaol - and if crossing from north to south, yes, keep going again and visit... More

I was walking from Sundays Well and decided to make a detour into Fitzgeralds Park and cross over the Shaky Bridge (never knew it was called Daly's Bridge until looking it up here). The reason it was called Daly's Bridge is after James Daly, a Cork businessman who gave the money for the bridge to be built in 1926 and... More

'The Shaky Bridge' as it is known locally is at the western side of Fitzgerald Park. It links the Southside and Northside of the city crossing over the river Lee. Not remarkable by any stretch of the imagination but nonetheless it is a good experience for young children. Normally we cross over and back, takes no time at all, always... More

This is known as the 'shaky bridge'. It is a suspension bridge built for the 1902 Great Exhibition, crossing the Lee from Sundays Well side. if you rock it, or jump on it, it still shakes!
