OK this is just a bridge. However it is a very nice bridge and worthy of more than a causal glance. Stroll across and pause to look out over the Liffe

An elegant and historical cast iron bridge. Officially titled the Liffey Bridge but better known as the Ha'Penny bridge after the toll that was charged. Restored in 2001 and painted white, the bridge is beautifully illuminated at night. Ultimately it is just a bridge but it is a well loved local icon. Please do not litter and vandalize our local...

This is a good connection between the north and south banks of the river especially when you aware close to the end of the hop on/off bus tour and you want to get to the south side restaurant district.

We crossed this lovely bridge which dates to nearly 200 years old whilst moving from the shops to the pubs and restaurants during our stay in the wonderful city of Dublin.It offers some wonderful views across the city.

Great to say "We crossed" the Halfpenny Bridge. Grand old bridge. The day we crossed it was raining which added to it's beauty.

This is actually the most distinct bridge, something you'll likely remember. It's pedestrian only, white and elegant, something nice and cute. Well, not a surprise, but people start putting locks, then authorities stepped in and tried to fight it back, so now this is turning into a mini battle ground.

Don't really understand what is so great about it, perhaps because of its age but I much rather cross the Liffey at O'Connell St. than the crowded little bridge.

It's a bridge, we walked over it a few times and it did not fall down. It works. It is of an interesting design and you can't miss it while in Dublin.
