This is something you MUST do if you go to Dublin--tradition and all. My father was born and raised in Dublin and talked about the bridge, traditions, etc. so we had to cross over a few times.

A beautiful bridge, built in 1816 to link the north & south sides of the Liffey, it's a perfect spot for photos ( but it does get congested, so go early for a quiet spot!)

This is such a sweet little bridge with the padlocks of "lovers." You need to cross it. We loved the River Liffey walk!

One of many things you would come across when visiting Dublin. The other side of this bridge is the famous temple bar of Dublin.

Come on - it's a bridge. OK, it's got some delicate wrought iron, It does provide direct access to Temple Bar from the other side of the river, so that's good....

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.

This pedestrian bridge links the north and south sides of Dublin, over the Liffey River. It got its name from the halfpenny people were charged to cross it many years ago.
