The Rosie Hackett Bridge is a road bridge in Dublin in Ireland, which opened on 20 May 2014. Spanning the River Liffey and joining Marlborough Street to Hawkins Street, it is intended solely for use by public transport, taxis, cyclists and pedestrians. It is 26 metres wide and 48 metres long, and is designed to be a slender, single span, smooth concrete structure, with the underside of the bridge designed to be as high above the water as possible so that river traffic is not impeded. It is planned to carry the Luas Cross City line, which is to connect the Luas Red and Green lines. It was budgeted at €15 million, and named for trade unionist Rosie Hackett.UseThe bridge is to carry the Luas Cross City, which is to connect the Luas Red and Green lines.

  • Just an additional bridge over the Liffey. Nothing special to see. Fine if you necessarily on that spot to the other side wants, because then you don't have to swim. Rosie Hackett what leader and founder of the Irish Women Workers ' Union, Union for working women. She supported the strikers during the Irish Lock-out, a massive strike by almost half a year for the right of workers to be members of a Trade Union. In 2014, the bridge was named after her.

  • Lovely bridge. What else can it be special about the bridge with Luas movie across in the future. More traffic in the city centre due to additional traffic light.  more »

Where to stay in Dublin

Dublin offers everything from luxury hotels to eclectic guesthouses. Explore over 1,000 years of history in the city on foot by staying at one of the hotels or hostels in the city center. The south side of the river has always been a popular place to stay, particularly near Temple University or the tourist nightlife center Temple Bar, but a new crop of attractive options has popped up on the north side as well. For more affordable accommodations, try a hostel or make your way toward St. Stephen's Green for a more comfortable stay at a mid-range hotel. If the artistic spirit of Dublin is what beckoned you, spend your holiday in a guesthouse near the creative Lower Gardiner Street.
