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

Nestled in a particularly peaceful and quiet spot just off the main street of Kenmare this ancient bridge bears no relation to THAT Cromwell, predating him by an few hundred years. Nonetheless its an atmospheric spot and a great photo opportunity. Amazing how well constructed...More

This bridge was right behind where we stayed at Cromwell Court. The kids loved scrambling up and down it. It was a really neat old bridge with lots of history.

This takes 2 minutes to see, but is a nice cute old bridge that is worth stopping to see. Nothing to do with Oliver Cromwell as you'll find out when you read the sign, but still fun to see anyway.

This little stone bridge has been here since the 11th century, which, to me, is simply amazing. It is easy to find, and will only take 5-10 minutes of your time. And if you are brave enough, you can still use it to cross over...More

This town had lots of stones, and the bridge was built with stones and arched very interesting. Kind of hard to climb on, but its more for looks. The town was a good place to roam around with interesting buildings.
