Sean O'Casey Bridge, Dublin

#456 of 983 in Things to do in Dublin
Seán O'Casey Bridge is a pedestrian swingbridge spanning the River Liffey in Dublin, joining City Quay in the Grand Canal Docks area to North Wall Quay and the IFSC.
Designed by architect Cyril O'Neill and O'Connor Sutton Cronin Consulting Engineers (for which they won an Institution of Structural Engineers Award for Pedestrian Bridges in 2006), the bridge was built in 2005 as part of a large-scale urban renewal scheme under the Dublin Docklands Development Authority to link the north and south quays and rejuvenate both. The swing bridge spans approximately 100 metres and has two balanced cantilever arms that swing open to permit boats to pass up river.
The bridge was opened by Taoiseach Bertie Ahern in July 2005. It is named after the playwright and Irish Citizens Army member Seán O'Casey (1880–1964) who lived in the North Wall area of the city.

  • Our boat tour was scheduled from this point as bachelor's walk site had some issues. Amazing experience for my family as they loved it.Knew nothing about the old and new Dublin but got to know a lot from this guided tour. Would recommend it to everyone. Must visit. It's not too expensive as well. Online for adult is only 13.50 euro and for students it's 13 only.
  • Nice views from here. Reinforces what a delightful place and contemporary city that Dublin is.
