The Ha’penny Bridge

Places to See | Dublin, Ireland.



This is probably the most famous place to see in Dublin and the best known of the city’s bridges. It was built in 1816 and was the first iron bridge in Ireland. It is a single span structure with cast iron railings and decorative lamps. It was originally named the Liffey Bridge but is now called the Ha’penny because until 1919 to cross it there was a half-penny charge.

The graceful curve of the Ha’penny Bridge is accepted as one of the official symbols of Dublin.

Address: The Ha’penny Bridge, Dublin Tourism Tourism Centre, Suffolk Street, Dublin 2, Ireland

We flew our drone over Downpatrick town and captured a couple of aerial 360° photographs. Look out for the marker points in the aerial virtual tours, some of which will allow you to jump from the sky down into some of the various visitor attractions found in the town.
