Imagine the best of Dublin city – pubs, galleries, restaurants and music – squeezed into a few blocks. Introducing Temple Bar, the cobbled, cultural heart of Dublin City.
The Temple Bar area is a square on the south bank of the River Liffey with off-shooting streets and narrow laneways. They’re lined with boutiques, cafes, galleries and pubs, and at any time of year, packed with culture-vultures and party-seekers. It’s the city’s playground, and it has a lot going on. Temple Bar is the centre of Dublin’s cultural universe. Buskers, street artists, open air markets and exhibitions a create carnival atmosphere. You can catch a show (no less than three theatres on offer), mosey through a gallery, explore a market, go to a gig or just sit in a café for Dublin’s best people-watching spot.
