Ha'penny Bridge

Ireland > Dublin

History of the bridge

Before the expansion of industrialisation, the people of Dublin relied on the river Liffey for all things trade. Constantly overcrowded and full of boats taking people to the other side, the the 43 meter long bridge made of cast iron opened. The opening came a relief to the locals who were willing to pay "ha'penny" (half a penny) to cross over - hence came the name Ha'penny bridge.

See the three beautiful arches with a light each lit up in the evenings and enjoy the view with a beer with the many public houses dotted alone the riverside. You haven't seen Dublin if you haven't crossed the Ha'penny Bridge.
