This is an excellent bridge that crosses the river Liffey. Well constructed and easy on the eye, also some good views from the bridge.

Riding on the hop on hop off bus you can’t miss it for sure. One of several bridges connecting North side with the south side of town. Would not seek it out

This is the main drag in the city centre. OConnell street has many restaurants and this bridge is a great starting point- go north and you have the post office and restaurants and some shopping, go south and you have temple bar, attractions and more...More
