Ha'penny Bridge

It's a white coloured metal pedestrian bridge. Much more photogenic at night in my opinion. Its located in the city centre.

This was the first toll bridge ever, according to our guide. No toll now. Just a leisurely stroll across the Liffey River.

Ha'penny Bridge is a white little bridge streching over the river Liffey. If you stroll by the bank you should cross it. I consider this bridge the most romantic of Dublin.

It's the footbridge across the Liffey so a shortcut from Temple Bar area over to the Spire and O'Connell street area and shops

This is a very neat sight. I would recommend going to view this in the evening when it is all lit up.

Ha'penny bridge used to be a toll bridge. It was built to replace the ferries which crossed the Liffey. It is an iron bridge. There are shallow steps on both sides but not wheel chair friendly.

I always know I am in Dublin when I cross this iconic bridge. Sure it is not modern as some new bridges in Dublin but it does have a class of its own.

It's a 'cute' bridge over the river. Not that close to the shopping areas but if you're walking it's only 5 or 10 minutes to get there. Nice to see, and gives you a good view from it.
