It's very good at what it does. It gets you over the water safely with minimal effort. I recommend this bridge to those who prefer not to swim.

Nice to see this sort of charm left in cities. The bridge connects both sides of the Liffey and is busy with pedestrians most of the time we were nearby. There are lots of padlocks so must be a popular place to lock in your love with someone. Interesting to see. Good views from bridge and just a gentle incline... More

This is one piece of Victoriana which is utterly charming, even if it is now the haunt of pickpockets and layabouts. It is also extremely conveniently sited for connecting pedestrians to both north and south sides and is really very busy. The graceful footbridge curves gently across the river - the best photos of it can be taken from the... More

A nice bridge over the liffey that seems to have attracted a fad of having padlocks attached to it.......some with love messages but lots without??? It also has a geocache on it!

A lovely quaint victorian bridge over the liffey. Can be busy at times and difficult to get photos. Lovely to dander across.

It's free to go over these days but it's also a place for homeless people to hang out and seek pity from the many tourists. A really nice bridge, originally built in the UK. Needs cleaning up.

Being in Dublin almost every day due to my work, and also being a traveller, I never realised prior to TripAdvisor that the Bridge is a tourist attraction, and warrants a 'ranking' Thank You so much for making me realise just how wonderful Dublin can be. This bridge IS A must see for anyone visiting. Also, both quay's either side... More
