  • 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 »

  • Other than its connection to the John Wayne movie, it's just another cute little bridge! The area around the bridge has become a bit muddy and weedy, so it was difficult to get any good pictures there.
  • Nice scenic spot just off the main road. Spot to park and picnic area.
  • Really beautiful place in Connamara, where part of the 50's movie 'The Quiet Man' was filmed. It's located a few miles east of Maam Cross and and just south of the Clifden Rd. It is a landmark and free to view.
  • 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!!
