"Halfpennybrigde" Top 5 Page for this destination Dublin Tip by globetrott

Dublin, Ireland: 100 reviews and 191 photos

Halfpennybrigde is an easy way to get across the river Liffey in the centre of Dublin and while it is free of charge today it once used to be a toll-brigde and the toll to cross it was 1/2 penny...
...THAT time is over, but I read on another VT-page ( by Greebo ) - that it is a great way to learn lots of local Irish expressions, when you try to cross that bridge with a lot of luggage ;-)
The river Liffey is quite a dirty river and it devides the rich southern part of Dublin from the poor northern part.
And in fact you should get across the bridge and walk the sidestreets of the northern part - some of these streets are really intimidating with strange people walking around, almost empty streets and barbed-wires on top of several fences...
You will be glad to be back in the southern part again !!

Directions: The river Liffey and Halfpennybridge are in the north of the city of Dublin.
