Great photo spot

Turn up at dusk just as the bridge starts to light up for an excellent photo of the bridge reflecting into the river.

This is a bridge that you must visit when in Dublin. At night, with the lights, it's beautiful. Plus, it's great for couples to have their picture taken on. You can also walk over the river to get to either the popular part of Dublin Centre or other side to do some walking around.

This is a highlight in tour books, and I don't know why. It's a very nice bridge but it's just a bridge. There are several in Dublin, equally interesting.

Great feature well designed, but spoilt by spillages and graffiti Dublin needs to smarten up its act somewhat

We had been touring around all day and finding the bridge required a few extra steps on very tired feet but it was well worth it.

What can i say? its just a footbridge, and heaving with people seemingly at all times too. But you can't not walk over it and anyway it links two areas either side of the river which are great for strolling about and browsing shops etc. Lots of graffiti and padlocks left by lovers and those hoping for love. cheesy but...

First destination whilst visiting family... To place our first love lock. Great little bridge close to Temple Bar quarter. Quiet windy but can imagine it will be lovely on a sunny day.

This bridge joins the two halves of the city.Its very pretty. Its also very busy. It is amusing watching tourists trying to get pics while the throngs cross the bridge. Better to go to the Millenium Bridge and take a pic from there. There is more space and you can see the Hapenny Bridge from there. Th only negative thing... More

If you're heading into Temple Bar from Henry Street then this is a great way to take in the sights of the River Liffey and see the Bridge. The usual things have started to happen though which is a little disappointing including graffiti and padlocks - flipping padlocks! - they are all over the shop which is just distracting from...

This bridge is a nice architectural piece over the River Liffey. It is close to the Temple Bar Street and usually it is a crowded area.
