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.
