Anna Livia Bridge is a stone arch bridge over the River Liffey, within Chapelizod village, which opened in 1753 and is therefore considered to be the oldest masonary bridge over the Liffey. It was originally known as Chapelizod Bridge (Irish: Droichead Shéipéal Iosóid, meaning "Isolde's Chapel Bridge"), but was renamed in 1982.

The bridge formed an important route out of Dublin to the west, being part of the T3 and the original N4. The opening of the N4 Chapelizod Bypass in 1987 reduced traffic levels somewhat, but the bridge was still considered to be a bottleneck. It was widened in 2011 with the construction of new footway bridges alongside the existing bridge
