Ha'penny Bridge, Dublin: 59 reviews and 93 photos

 
 

Ha'penny Bridge (offically Wellington Bridge) is a landmark of the city and acepted as the symbol of Dublin. This bridge was opened in 1816 and before the openning of the new Millenium bridge in 2000 was the only pedestrian bridge on the Liffey. Cast at Coalbrookdale in Shropshire in England, the bridge acquired its unofficial monniker from the toll paid to cross the river. Until 1919 when the toll was dropped turnstiles lay on either side of it.
