The Ha'penny Bridge is probably the most scenic bridge crossing the river Liffey. It connects Temple bar with the shopping streets on the North side. Hence it's always very busy and attracts beggars as well.

The pedestrian bridge used to be called Wellington Bridge but the only name used for it has always been Ha'penny Bridge. It cost half a penny to cross this bridge ages ago - that's what it's got its name from. Since 1919 it's free and one of the nicest views of Dublin.

The bridge was polished and repaired between 2001 and 2003. Ever since then it's white instead of grey-black-dirty coloured. I must say I liked it better the way it was before. The white looks a bit strange really.

Address: 15 Bachelors Walk, Dublin 1
Directions: Left of O'Connell Bridge when facing the North Side.
