This is the oldest bridge in Dublin. The name was gave because the people were pay half penny to cross the river

We did not know about this until our taxi driver pointed it out while driving us to our hotel from the ferry. So small for an inner-city bridge, but doubtless a huge achievement at the time.

I love the vibrations of the city under your feet if you stand at the highest point. A marvel from its time and you have to ponder the tale this would tell of the history and events that it has seen over its lifespan How many romantic events and how many sad? A must if you go to Dublin and... More

It should be restricted to poets and artists. Its a beautiful pedestrian walk bridge, used by all who in there urgency only see its aesthetic subliminally, a pity.

You have to walk over the Ha'penny Bridg when in Dublin. It not long, not amazing, but wonderful to just do it. It doesn't cost anything, and it only takes a couple minutes.

This bridge is right in the center. In daytime it is with a interesting story (the name), and in night it can be one of the best photos you will do in Dublin.

Great on a beautiful day to walk and take photos of. Top it off with a walk to the Temple Bar Section for a drink or to Dublin Castle , Christ Church or DUblinia .

It helps immensely to get from one side of the river to the other, but aside from that there is not a lot to see here apart from maybe a good view of the city.
