A decorative bridge in the heart od Dublin, the Ha'penny bridge is a must see. I took several photos of the Liffey on my stay in dublin with this bridge making it look even more beautiful with its shapes and detail.

It's in the centre of Dublin so we past the Halfpenny Bridge. Nothing special. We had read about the many "love-locks" there. Had to look hard and only saw about a dozen.

Its a bridge, I had read that couples put locks on it, similar to the one in France but there were only about 10 in total so seemed like a bit of a lack luster tradition. It got us over the river well and straight into Temple Bar as we wanted! So cannot say anything bad about it. Unfortunately the... More

A bridge is a bridge is a bridge. However the history makes it worth seeing. Charging to cross the Liffey is or may have been the the beginning if the bridge toll system. 😜. Whatever it is a part of Dublin's history and worth seeing.

The Ha'penny Bridge is very historic and worth seeing! The official name is the Liffey Bridge, and is a pedestrian bridge built in 1816 over the River Liffey. You will see it on most bus tours.

Dublin is full of bridges, but Halfpenny is definitely my favourite! I find it beautiful and I love how busy it is but sometimes you just have to stop and take a good look of Dublin!

I love the Ha'Penney; I really do. But, I am getting tired of dodging the panhandlers. Also, there appears to be a growing accumulation of "love locks" on the bridge. I appreciate the concept of love locks, but they detract from the esthetic value of the bridge. Still...it offers great photo ops.

Ha'penny Bridge as it is called, its certainly worth a walk over this scenic bridge with great views of city and river. Its a bridge with lots of history, water below needs some upkeep though...
