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.

What a lovely old Victorian bridge to cross over the River Liffey. Years ago people were charged halfpence to cross the brigde.

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

There's not much else to say - I seem to remember there is something about carrying your partner over the bridge so you only had to pay the ha'penny toll rather than 2 x a ha'penny but I could be totally wrong on that one
