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.

    One of the many bridges that crosses the river in the heart of Dublin. The bridge gets you very close to the Temple Bar area.

    I love the Samuel Beckett Bridge in Dublin as it is designed like the national symbol of Ireland … the Harp. Looks amazing both day or night!

    One of the main bridges over the Liffey river in Dublin and probably the only bridge that its length (45 meters) is shorter than its width (50 meters). Originally, built narrower at the end of 18th Cent. , and reconstructed a century later to its current width (due to traffic jams). Nice and great for using your cameras.

    A pedestrianised bridge that is nothing flash, just a convenient way to get across the river, from temple bar, a nice from there up to Henry st.

    Nice concept and a relative simple design but nothing outstanding. It’s a good and cycling bridge only. Worth a quick look I suppose.

    Thursday 4th August and we walked across this bridge which spans the River Liffey for 48 metres (over 157 feet). It joins Marlborough Street on one side of the River to Hawkins Street on the other.

    The Bridge opened in 2014, it was constructed to carry the Luas (Street Tram). At 26 metres (85 feet) as well as the Luas it only carries public transport, taxis and pedestrians.

    It is named in honour of Rosanna "Rosie" Hackett, who was born in Dublin in 1893 and died there in 1976 aged 83.

    During her life she was a Trade Unionist and co-founder of the Irish Women Workers' Union. She supported the strikers in the Dublin Lockout in 1913. She was also a member of the Irish Citizen Army and was involved in the Easter Rising of 1916.

    It is rather fitting that this bridge bears her name as it is located a short distance from Liberty Hall, the Trade Union Headquarters in Dublin. It is also one of the visible landmarks when looking down the Liffey from the Bridge in the direction of Dublin Port.

    We crossed this bridge the most when crossing the river. It is a bridge doing its job, the “sea horses” are impressive and reminded me of the Guinness advert with the surfer.

    Not that I am into equations, like a previous reviewer, over the many years I have lived in this fine city I have been across this bridge over and over, it always fascinated me with it's steepness, and bump at the top, a strange experience when driving over it, there is a blind spot as you go over, cars have had head on collisions on this bridge in the past, but now it is one way only, so a little safer than the old days.
    The bridge goes over the railway line between Dublin and Longford, and has a rather charmless Broombridge station nearby, also the Royal canal goes under it too, which is very charming, you may want to incorporate that on your visit to this very unique bridge.

    Nothing specular but it is a nice bridge with a small memorial and plaque to Robert Emmet. Worth a look.

    This pretty non-descript bridge over the River Liffey was built in 1978. Architecturally, it's nothing special.

    A sturdy, wide, granite bridge, dealing with traffic and pedestrians. Just next to it you also have a raised railway bridge.

    Whilst walking along the water front of the Liffey, we stumbled on a industrial like contraption , that turned out to be a rolling lift, worth a look during a walk.

    Not as large nor impressive as O’Connell Bridge or Samuel Beckett Bridge but still possesses some character. Quite a vivid colour in comparison to the others which makes it more attractive to look at.
