Ha’penny Bridge goes across river Liffey in Dublin‘s city center connecting Ormond Quay at Liffey St. and Wellington Quay near the Temple Bar area.
Ha’penny Bridge was built in 1816. Since its opening till 1919, they charged a half penny for people to walk across, and the name “Ha’penny” came from that. The bridge is beautifully designed, and always clouded with people (mostly tourists). I like to take a photo of Ha’penny Bridge from other bridges such as O’Connell bridge, where you can get the entire bridge in the frame.
