The ha'penny bridge is one of many crossing the river in Dublin centre and we found it useful to walk along the wooden decks and cross over these bridges to let our meal go down before bedtime.

Ha peeny is an important part of a visit to Dublin. From the business side of downtown to the busy side steets of the tourist area is a good transition point

cutest way to cross the river with the scrolly metalwork and lovelocks. It's a great view down the river and a photo op, for sure!

This great footbridge crosses the river and stands out among many bridges doing the same. It is a photo opportunity and a piece of history. Someone told me the real name of the bridge, which I forget, since it is known as ha'penny for the toll it used to charge long ago. It is just one of the things you... More

My wife and I have been over this bridge a dozen times over the years and it truly is a wonderful experience with beautiful views everywhere, but please watch your step. Because the rise in the steps on the bridge is not what one normally experiences in any building or public place elsewhere, it visually seems that when going down... More

When visiting somewhere like Dublin you need to do all the touristy bits and the Ha'penny Bridge is no exception. Great opportunity for a selfie lover.

Out for a walk & we crossed the bridge & back. This is a piece of history that just needed to be walked on.
