Just because you have to do this when in Dublin we traveled over this famous bridge multiple times while visiting the area. Very historic bridge and you should get to know about this.

The river Liffey separates the districts of Dublin center and this beautiful and enticing bridge is a lovely divider. Lovely to stroll in the daytime, it's beautiful and romantic at night and a must-see.

One morning I went jogging and I crossed this bridge three times. There's a vagrant staying on the top of the bridge, collecting money from the people who cross it. DONT PAY.

Personally I think this is the nicest bridge in Dublin, it links the Southside to the Northside quickly for pedestrians, Dame Street to Henry Street is only minutes apart if you use the Halfpenny Bridge. Originally it was a toll bridge now it's free. It offers get photo opportunities down towards the port and out toward Islandbridge. There was a... More

Great place for photos and breathtaking views.We were in Dublin for a week and we strolled back and forth on the bridge practically everyday. It gets crowed on weekends but its a very pleasant stroll

Attractive bridge over the Liffey leading into the busy area of Temple Bar. Great photographic opportunity! Only downside is that there were alot of beggars sitting on the bridge because of the high footfall.

I thought the bridge was pretty at night. The view looking over the river was serene with all of the lights reflecting upon the water. Midway across the bridge you'll notice lots of padlocks secured to the metal beams. People secure these, against the cities wishes, as symbols of their love for one another. Watch your step as you walk... More

Very much a part of Dublin, a must see on a visit. There are new bridges in Dublin, but this is certainly the best.

It used to be a half penny toll bridge. Now it is completely free... but it was reinforced by Harlan and Wolf, builders of HMS Titanic. Glups!
