  • The Seán O'Casey Bridge is a walking swing type bridge spanning the River Liffey. Bridge affords the ability to go from Quay City to the North Wall Quay. Great views of river and city.  more »
  • Built in 2005 as part of a major urban renewal project, this elegant suspension bridge crosses the River Liffey calling the City Quay to the North Wall Quay. Its structure revolves around a vertical axis, providing an opening for the passage of boats. Designed by architect Cyril O'Neill, this pedestrian bridge in 2006 received a RIAI Award and the iStructE Award for Pedestrian Bridges and international architecture Award 2007 1. His name is a tribute to the playwright and a member of the Irish Citizens army Seán O'Casey (1880-1964) who lived near the site.

  • Used this bridge when attending a concert at this end of the city. It is a nice bridge and is functional.  more »

  • Interesting bridge for bikers and pedestrians. There are a few more around nowadays but it is the fastest route from the CHQ to the Merrion Square or St Stephens Green. The bridge was constructed around 2007 so the quality of the structure is not great but so far only the parts meant to guide ships have fallen off.
  • Was really disappointed: overcrowded and definitely not worth it. Since there are multiple places nearby to visit, it still easy to have a quicklook, but if you can't, you don't miss anything.
  • Foot and bikes only. Good views!
  • Great bridge. Never failed at getting me to the other side.
  • One of my favorite spots by the river for taking photographs, fantastic views from here, especially early in the morning, the sun comes from the right direction for wonderful scenes of the waking up city.
