Sean O'Casey Bridge

Spanning Custom House Quay to City Quay , Dublin 2

Seán O'Casey Bridge is a pedestrian swing bridge 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 the IStructE 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 for the playwright and Irish Citizens Army member Seán O'Casey (1880-1964) who lived in the North Wall area of the city.

Over the past 10 years I spend an average of 190 nights per annum in hotels throughout Europe and the USA, and the Trinity is my favourite hotel of all! The friendly staff and the accommodation make for an enjoyable stay.


Really nice hotel, staff very helpful. Bed very comfy and rooms nice and warm, would recommend it to all.
