  • It’s a bridge, never mind the bridge and head to the pub in Leenaun that’s the real place to head to get a pint and talk to the locals  more »
  • It is a bridge...over a brook. There is room to park on the street near the bridge. Lovely photo op. It is just off the N59.  more »

  • It's a nice tribute to the movie but hard to find. We were given 4 different ways to go before finding someone willing to get us the correct info. It has not been kept up, there is a picture & small bio of John Wayne off to the side but no highway signs. Good spot for pictures, nice surrounding area with the river, tress & mountains as background.
  • What a great piece of movie history! Scenic bridge! Loved it!!
  • Quiet, secluded and atmospheric in the evening.Off the N59 with just a sign to Leam now, so you need to drive carefully as you approach the turn.
  • If you know The Quiet Man then you will be happy to see this bridge which appears in the film. We were lucky there was no one else about, which let us absorb the beautiful surrounding scenery. Worth a stop.
  • My dad loved visiting. Reminded him of his cowboy days!
