This is an average footbridge crossing the River Lee. You get a good view of St. Fin Barre's Cathedral up river. There is usually someone begging on the bridge no matter what time of day. Can be dangerous when bicycles are using it at high speed.

Firstly, I'm a little alarmed at the negative reviews of this bridge. Perhaps there's a little jealousy involved. Name me a single bridge at that location that can compete. If you have an open mind and an eye for beauty, this is the bridge for you. On the North, the Quay Coop, on the South a couple of OK places.... More

This bridge is across the river in town. Like most bridges are. There didn't appear to be anything special about it. I happened to be there anyway but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it.

River Lee is lifeline of Cork City, I must say. It merges with Celtic ocean here in Cork. The harbour is a natural one . River Lee has 42 bridges. 29 bridges r in Cork !!!!!!! .Nano Nagle bridge is one of them, connecting Sullivan Quay n Grand parade. I find it simple one compared to Ha'penny bridge

This is simply a pedestrian bridge linking Grand Parade to Sullivan's Quay. Locals say it was built to make it easier for Revenue staff to cross that they could get to work easier in the mornings!! The Revenue people have now left the area and moved to Blackpool. There is nothing whatever of architectural merit in the structure.

This is a very nice tourist attraction. Go on Saturday and they have a farmer's market that is run by the nuns. Everything at the market is homemade and fresh. The irish scones are awesome but do buy a jar of the rheubarb and ginger jam, it is to DIE for. The Nano Nagle story is quite interesting and the... More

I'm not sure if we're going to be including the wonderful traffic lights of the Grand Parade or the mysterious phone booth of the South Mall on TripAdvisor too, but this entry is not remotely relevant to tourists visiting Cork. Nano Nagle bridge is just a rather plain, simple and utilitarian foot bridge that is really quite unremarkable. It's not... More

What a visitor attraction this is! Imagine it, a structure built to span the physical obstacle that is a river for the purpose of providing passage over said obstacle. It's perfect as a scenic shortcut from O'Sullivan's Quay to Grand Parade and even more so should you have a Cork footbridge fettish. The paving and metal construction manage to form... More

I walked over this bridge yesterday. It takes about 15 seconds to cross, walking at a reasonable pace. It gets you nicely from Sullivan's Quay onto the Grand Parade, and that is about it. Watch out for beggars and homeless people who like to use it as a social amenity.

A bridge. From one side of the river all the way to the other side (approx 30 metres)
