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

It's the quaintest of the bridges near Temple Bar. Well worth having your photo taken on. It could do with a lick of paint but I'm sure it gets one before summer. Hard to miss and you'd be daft to miss it.

Lovely history with most of the bridges but this one in particular. It is in need of a little sprucing up but for what it is....it is not too bad. Has to be visited when in Dublin.

I don't know think this bridge is a destination to seek out during your visit but it is nice to walk over while you are exploring around the river. There is no way to miss it but if you do there a tons others that seemed pretty identical to me. We were there over Valentines day weekend and they decorated... More

Lovely little bridge and nice bit of history. Woke up Friday morning and walked to the River to find that Aldi had completely decorated and covered the bridge in Roses ready for Valentines day. They were even giving roses out to the ladies that walked over the bridge. A real nice touch and nothing that we would get back in... More

It's a nice enough bridge. Perfect time for a selfie with some pidgeons. But that's about it - it's just a bridge! Not really sure what all the hype is about - there are certainly more impressive bridges about!

As above. Its a nice enough bridge, but Dublin has MANY, some nicer than this. Its not lit up or anything and get a rammed with tourists. Plenty nicer things to see in Dublin. Also, be cautious of pickpockets- I had someone try and get me to help them across the bridge and wanted to hold my arm a certain... More

Really and truly, most brochures and newspaper articles that advertise trips to Dublin, invariably will show one of a number of things as a picture defining the city. First would probably be some smiling old man drinking a pint of the black stuff, next would be a statue of Molly Malone, but one will always show this bridge, it is... More

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!
