What people are saying:

The bridge, the first pedestrian bridge across the river Liffey in the city, was the halfpenny bridge, the first to be charged to anyone crossing the river. It was a must-punch.

Additional Information


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.
