Owner description: One of the most attractive bridges in Dublin, the Sean O'Casey Bridge is the most easterly pedestrian bridge (2016). The bridge also pivots open to allow maritime traffic to proceed easterly up the Liffey. It links the South Docks area and Trinity College at Pearse Street with EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum at The CHQ Building, the Famine Statues, the Jeanie Johnson Famine Ship and Georges Dock (Oktoberfest, I Believe Christmas festival etc.) at Custom House Quay.
Useful Information: Wheelchair access
Reviewed July 24, 2013

This bridge is named after the Irish Playwright, O'Casey [1880-1964], who lived in this area. It connects Custom House Quay with the North Wall Quay, and it opened in 2005. It's about 100 meters long, and can swing open to allow boats head up and down the river. Since it has opened, it has become a bit of a landmark, and has appeared in advertisements for O2 and Guinness. This was one of three new bridges over the Liffey in 5 years, after the Millennium Bridge and the James Joyce Bridge.
