    Useful when entering or leaving Temple Bar - reasonably more difficult leaving.

    It is also one of the few footbridges across the Liffey which means that no cars or trucks can cross it.

    Great night out, very friendly place. Comedy club (upstairs) on most nights & well worth a visit. Highly recommended if your visiting Dublin

    You can lock a padlock in one of the tubes. Just like in Paris!

    Featured in the video of Old Town by Phil Lynott, My son and I walked over the bridge, and through into the Temple Bar area. Great fun unless it is raining!
