The Ha'Penny (Half Penny) is a pedestrian bridge over the River Liffey original built in the early 1800s. It cute easy sight to see in your strolls through Dublin center. It is nicknamed the Ha'Penny Bridged because its toll was a half-penny to cross. It takes only a minute or so to cross over at a standard pace, and provides a great shortcut from the Temple Bar to the North Quays. It is lit up at night, providing a pretty scene against the dark water of the river.

Address: The Quays
Directions: Center of the River Liffey
