Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We spotted this bridge from another we were crossing on our way into central Cork. It’s probably easily spotted from St Fine Barre’s Cathedral too. The Bridge is a short walk from Nano Nagle Place (of course!) and is perhaps a little more modern looking than some other footbridges above the River Lee.

We have an affiliation with the Presentation Order of Sisters, so we sought out this bridge. It's hard to find the plaque to Nano and it's not a grand bridge, but it does lead you on a journey to the Nano Nagle Centre where the Presentation Order was established. The cemetery and grounds and history there make up for the lacklustre bridge.

This is an average footbridge crossing the River Lee.
You get a good view of St. Fin Barre's Cathedral up river.
There is usually someone begging on the bridge no matter what time of day.
Can be dangerous when bicycles are using it at high speed.

Firstly, I'm a little alarmed at the negative reviews of this bridge. Perhaps there's a little jealousy involved.
Name me a single bridge at that location that can compete.
If you have an open mind and an eye for beauty, this is the bridge for you.
On the North, the Quay Coop, on the South a couple of OK places.
Can you get across at this point by car or ferry? No.
If you take your eyes off "the guidebooks" (TM pending), you can see St Finbarr's cathedral, O Connor's funeral home (with their proud record of no notable burials since 1901), the previous site of Sir Henry's and the courtyard with the gallery.
A bridge is worth more than the iron iron and mortar involved.
It's a representation of relationships between two halves of a city.

This bridge is across the river in town. Like most bridges are. There didn't appear to be anything special about it. I happened to be there anyway but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it.

River Lee is lifeline of Cork City, I must say. It merges with Celtic ocean here in Cork. The harbour is a natural one . River Lee has 42 bridges. 29 bridges r in Cork !!!!!!! .Nano Nagle bridge is one of them, connecting Sullivan Quay n Grand parade. I find it simple one compared to Ha'penny bridge

This is simply a pedestrian bridge linking Grand Parade to Sullivan's Quay. Locals say it was built to make it easier for Revenue staff to cross that they could get to work easier in the mornings!! The Revenue people have now left the area and moved to Blackpool.

There is nothing whatever of architectural merit in the structure.

This is a very nice tourist attraction. Go on Saturday and they have a farmer's market that is run by the nuns. Everything at the market is homemade and fresh. The irish scones are awesome but do buy a jar of the rheubarb and ginger jam, it is to DIE for.

The Nano Nagle story is quite interesting and the grounds are quite nice.

I'm not sure if we're going to be including the wonderful traffic lights of the Grand Parade or the mysterious phone booth of the South Mall on TripAdvisor too, but this entry is not remotely relevant to tourists visiting Cork.

Nano Nagle bridge is just a rather plain, simple and utilitarian foot bridge that is really quite unremarkable.

It's not a tourist attraction and this article's just going to confuse people planning trips to Cork.

What a visitor attraction this is! Imagine it, a structure built to span the physical obstacle that is a river for the purpose of providing passage over said obstacle.

It's perfect as a scenic shortcut from O'Sullivan's Quay to Grand Parade and even more so should you have a Cork footbridge fettish. The paving and metal construction manage to form a pleasing, even slightly arousing means to cross one of the River Lee tributaries.

Either way, it's a well spent 15 seconds out of your life to traverse and open 24/7. No entrance (or exit) charge. Panhandlers an added colourful extra. While not 'up there' with Sydney Harbour, the Golden Gate, London or Avignon, it's got aspirations towards greatness and perhaps a little bit of potential to be a wonderful little bridge.
