Pretty bridge with history. Brought our 4 children to Dublin for a few days and entertained them while walking the city by noting the bridges.

the bridge is in the centre of dublin and is closed to the area temple bar. history is telling that everybody has to pay a half penny to the ferryman wo lost his job after building this full metal bridge. this was signed for 100years, but today is for free. must seen attraction.

Make sure you take a padlock when you visit Dublin. Write your names on the padlock, add the padlock to all of the others on ha penny bridge and kiss as you throw the keys in the canal!

Walked across at night to get somewhere for dinner and it was a lovely sight. Lights reflected on the water etc. Walked past many times during the day as well. Very cool bridge.
