It is nothing like really impressive design or something, but has a lovely historical background and is very important landmark so if you are in Dublin, you must see it.

Went in 2012 It's a simple bridge with beautiful views. I took quite a few pictures from here. It's also an excellent place to stop and just take in your environment.

funny story about this bridge's nickname (it comes from the half penny toll you had to pay to cross the river), but seems no one knows the bridge for its real, official name (Liffey, after the river it crosses)

I love the vibrations of the city under your feet if you stand at the highest point. A marvel from its time and you have to ponder the tale this would tell of the history and events that it has seen over its lifespan How many romantic events and how many sad? A must if you go to Dublin and... More
