Beautiful bridge!

This bridge is worth seeing from a distance and taking pictures or actually walking across the River Liffey.

tour guide stated that the artist shaped the bridge to look like a harp. It is in a busy area, must pretty much drive past this to see it.

Our hotel was by the side of this bridge so we crossed it several times. A great piece of architecture, in the shape of a harp, that also looks great in the evening. Allegedly the structure sounds like its playing music in certain weather although we didn't get to hear it during our stay. You can also get a great... More

This beautiful bridge really adds to the atmosphere and scenery of the new docklands area. The architecture in this area of Dublin is fresh and inspiring

Loving looking in the shape of an old Irish harp and it joins the north side to the south side and is also nice pedestrian bridge for taking a vista down the Liffey.

Last time I was a tourist in Dublin, the Ha'penny Bridge was covered in scaffolding and plastic. So nice to see it so wonderfully restored and to be able to walk over it for the first time. A small piece of Dublin history.

Nice bridge linking south and north dublin, as many bridges along the liffey do. This one is special since it is designed in the shape of Ireland's national instrument, the harp. It is quite beautiful and makes for excellent photo-ops especially in the evening when the convention center behind it is lit up.

Dublin down town split between two parts by the river. The south part is bigger and with more restaurants and shops. I enjoyed walking there and I bought lots of things with great deals.
