Heuston Bridge, Dublin: 1 reviews and 1 photos

 
 

Heuston bridge, built in 1828 is the most westernly bridge on the Liffey. Originally nearby Heuston Railway Station was also named Kingsbridge - but both were renamed in honour of Sean Heuston who was one of the sixteen executed leaders of the Easter 1916 Rising. Nowadays after the openning of the new Frank Sherwin Bridge in 1982 is virtually unused, but is a very pretty and historic bridge.

Directions: near Heuston Station and Phoenix Park
