Croom Bridge is a six stone arch road bridge that carries the R516 across the River Maigue in Croom, County Limerick. The bridge was built c.1790

The road was once the N20 but following the opening of the Croom Bypass in July 2001, it was downgraded.

The bridge was the scene of protests in 1988, following a decision to widen and improve the structure, which necessitated the replacement of the stone parapets with metal railings.
