Its a place to cross the river. There is history the , but not a must see experience. Nice to have seen it, but not a highlight of an excellent trip.

There is something really cool about crossing the River Liffey on this bridge. It takes about a minute to do it, and seeing the locks people have installed is really neat. It'll take you a few minutes, and it's fun... You'll be able to say you did it!

One of the iconic places of Dublin. Connects temple bar area with the centre of the city. It has views of O'Connell bridge and the Heineken building and far away you can spot the docks. People likes to hang a "love lock" on its metal bars to bring them good luck.. I just hope this practice won't bring the bridge... More

Ha'penny Bridge is a Dublin landmark, and one of those "must do" attractions. It doesn't require much time. Walk across. Take some pictures. Be happy you're in Dublin!

The Halfpenny Bridge is an easy-to-identify, easy-to-find landmark in the city. Despite its name and history, crossing the bridge is free now. Definitely a worthwhile photo opportunity for budget travelers, those in the city for a short time, and everyone else, as well.

Picturesque bridge of a historical nature. Has interesting "locks of love" for those romantics. An easy walk from side to side. Lovely lights at night.

This is a landmark in Dublin. Named after the fee they used to charge to cross over it back in the day. Its free now.

My wife and I were visiting Temple Bar and then decided to walk to see the river. We saw the Halfpenny Bridge and the river, both interesting. I took a photograph of the bridge and the river to remember them.

This is a beutiful bridge to look at and is georgeous at night all lit up. It is conveniently placed for acess to some good shops at either side of the river. The one thing that truly lets this beutiful bridge down is the realy stupid craze of placing a padlock with your lovers name on it and throwing away... More
