Ballsbridge or Ball's Bridge is a bridge in Dublin, Ireland. Situated in "Pembroke" which spans the River Dodder on the south side of the city, it is a three-arch stone bridge and was built in 1791.

Pembroke is an exclusive and very affluent area and is known to contain very expensive property. However, this name is little known and the area is instead more commonly known as Ballsbridge, named after the bridge in the area. The sign on the bridge still proclaims it as "Ball's Bridge" in recognition of the fact that the original bridge in this location was built and owned by a Mr. Ball.

Ballsbridge was once part of the Pembroke Township.
