The Ha’penny Bridge, officially named the Liffey Bridge is one of Dublin’s most iconic pedestrian bridges. The Ha’penny Brdge as it is fondly known as, first got its name from the toll that was charged to cross it when it was first constructed.
This charming bridge was constructed in 1816 to connect pedestrians between the North side of the City and the South side. The arch shaped bridge is exquisitely made of cast iron and is minutes’ walk from the doors of the Morrison hotel.
In recent years the bridge has become home to many love locks where couples inscribe their names onto locks, attach them to the bridge and throw away the key, signifying eternal love.
