IMMERSE YOURSELF IN LIVELY DUBLIN ATMOSPHERE

The Temple Bar District is a well-known area of Dublin, located on the south bank of the River Liffey. It’s a square district with narrow pedestrian lanes lined with shops, cafés, galleries and pubs.

You’ll find a world of wonders to discover with live entertainment, art, and culture thriving, both day and night.

In the 1600s, Sir William Temple, a British statesman, built his residence and gardens here giving the area its namesake. Temple Bar was then mostly inhabited by workmen and tradespeople, but today is one of Dublin’s cultural hubs.

The district brims with street artists, exhibitions and no less than three theatres. Along the year, a host of festivals brightens the atmosphere, with the biggest being the Temple Bar Tradfest.

You can catch gigs, shows and exhibitions as well as explore the many markets. Every weekend, you can roam around the stalls of the Book Market or purchase fresh food from the Food Market. 

Nearby, you’ll also find the National Wax Museum Plus, the National Photographic Archive and the Irish Film Institute.

For a well-deserved break from sightseeing, you could pop into the microbrewery Porterhouse. Make sure to taste one of their own brews for a true Irish craft beer experience.
