Definitely the most unusual bridge I have ever seen. Looks very old as well it looks like was not easy to use it. If you visit Kenmare it makes sense to see this attraction. It is not far from town centre and can be seen...More

Kenmare has a wealth of history and just steps out of town was this charming bridge. Be sure to stop and see it, and the ring forte and fairey tree nearby.

You find this little bridge on exploring the town, it is set in a small piece of natural parkland but worth a look.

We were walking from The Kenmare Bay Hotel on pathway to Kenmare town centre. It is a very well surfaced and signed walkway. Cromwell's Bridge is signposted just off the pathway and near to the town. It is a must see because of its unusual...More

Make the effort to discover this hidden gem. Imagine 11th century daily life as it crossed this bridge to and fro over the river. Not named for Cromwell but maybe for "cromael" or moustache because of its shape!

Loved this little spot on my painting trip. The bridge itself was fascinating with grass growing out of the top and from the front seemingly impossible to climb. However there are no benches and no signposting to the far side of it which is less...More

This is a charming and mysterious ca. 11th-century arch bridge, which somehow still stands. It actually has nothing to do with Cromwell as the name may derive from an Irish word. If you appreciate ancient architecture, this is well worth a visit. One can walk...More
