    Half penny and you are good to go

    Pretty pedestrian bridge

    Worth walking down to the river to see this pretty iconic bridge. Really nice that it’s pedestrians only. Good spot for a cheesy tourist picture. Definitely worth visiting at nighttime as the lights a...

    HISTORIC PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE

    This is the most historic of the bridges over the River Liffey in the heart of Dublin, close to the Temple Bar neighborhood. It's especially pretty at night, all lit up.

    Not much to see

    There's not really much to see here. It's a rather busy pedestrian bridge with some historical significance but not worth going out of your way for.

    Famous

    As is sometimes the case with famous monuments, when you visit them, you wonder why they are so special. It is actually quite an ordinary pefestrian bridge over the river Liffey.

Additional Information

Introduction

In 1816, in order to connect Dublin's north and south urban areas, the Irish specially built a beautifully designed light bridge on the Li River, which was only for pedestrians. After the completion of the bridge, the pedestrian crossing notice must pay half a penny, so there is a title of "half pence bridge". When night falls, the half-penny bridge will light up the yellow light, as if a golden curved bow lies on the quiet Li River, which is unique.
