Pedestrian-only Ha'penny Bridge is one of several bridges that cross the River Liffey in Dublin.
Although it has gone by different names since it was originally built in 1816 (Wellington Bridge, Liffey Bridge, and Penny Ha'penny Bridge among them), the one it's best known by come from the toll amount that was once charged to cross it.
Connecting the north and south sides of Dublin, Ha'penny Bridge is steps from the Temple Bar area. Lit at night, it's a fine place for a romantic stroll to end a memorable day in Dublin.
