This bridge is so beautiful and on a sunny day it looks absolutely beautiful. It can get quite busy but is a great photo op!

This is a quaint pedestrian bridge in central Dublin that crosses the Liffey river. It links the Temple Bar area ( north side) with the south side of the river. On the south side is Grafton Street. Do stop half way and look both sides as there is a good view up and down the river. It is a landmark... More

This is a really pretty little bridge that will take you directly into the Temple Bar district from the other side of the Liffey. Great for photos, and gives you a good view up and down the river. A must see, as it's one of the landmarks of the city.

This bridge is as part of Dublin as the river Liffey is. It has been part of Dublin since I can remember and I love to cross it to get to the other side of the Liffey. When it is not crowed and that is seldom, I like to stop in the middle and look both up and down the... More

The Ha'penny bridge is a beautiful part of Dublin and has been around much much longer than the current fad of locking padlocks to its railings. Please don't lock love locks to the bridge, they damage the structure and cost the city thousands to remove every year. Take a picture on or by the bridge at night instead.

No great deal. Visit at night that is more beautiful. Walk along the river. It is very nice, and then go to a pub in Temple Bar.

We went in the evening and it was very beautiful to see everything reflecting off the river. A lot of tradition with this bridge - locks of love attached to the bridge.

For the sake of being able to say you've crossed the bridge it makes a great attraction on your to do list if you are visiting Dublin. If you live in Dublin it's going to become just a normal bridge eventually. It's still great though to be able to walk across it. For the experience of being there and doing... More

It is just a bridge with a nice folklore tale attached. not a must see. Nice for the walking tour as it crosses into Temple Bar and brigs you back to along the river. pack a padlock!
