The Temple Bar area is very interesting, some nice old buildings and a cosmopolitain feel.
Fondest memory: Grafton Street and Henry Street are the main shopping areas. There was lots of people in the precinct selling cigarettes (illegal imports I think) and bananas. Every 50 metres or so there were more people and more bananas and they were all selling for the same price...bizarre, but entertaining!!
Tourism in Eire is a rather new event since about 10 years); I heard that from a dubliner...

Notice that Dublin is a safe city.
Le tourisme en Irlande est plutot chose nouvelle (depuis une dizaine d'années environ), je tiens celà d'un dublinois.
Le centre-ville de Dublin (Baile Atha Cliath) est animé jour et nuit.
Un tas de choses à voir dans cette charmante ville, ainsi, Temple bar (touristique), O' Conell Street, les rives du fleuve Liffey, la cathédrale St. Patrick, Trinity College, Grafton street, le parc et le centre commercial St Stephen's Green etc ...
Si vous êtes perdus dans la ville ou si vous avez besoin d'un renseignement, les dublinois feront tout pour vous aider, de façon très amicale.
En général, Dublin est une ville sûre.
Fondest memory: ENGLISH VERSION :
The first time I was there, it was during the HALLOWEEN period in 2000. The first night, a few hours after landing, I went to Temple bar district.
The streets and pubs were full of people gathered here and there, as some others were singing, dancing and laughing, disguised in funny clothes, all over the place ... what a crazy night.
Much Guiness beer flowed this night.
Pretty good athmosphere ... A must live !
VERSION FRANCAISE :
J'ai été à Dublin la première fois pendant la période d'HALLOWEEN.(très vieille tradition irlandaise), en octobre 2000 pour être plus precis.
Peu après mon arrivée, je me suis rendu dans le centre-ville, dans le quartier de temple bar.
Dans les rues, il y avait une foule incroyable, certains, en groupe, dançaient, chantaient et riaient alors que d'autres assistaient en spectateurs. Génial, une excellente ambiance ...et la Guiness a coulé à flots, une bonne partie de la nuit... Des moments à vivre ...

One of the most interesting things to do during the day around Temple Bar is to visit Dublin's Viking Adventure. Here you get an entertaining 40 minute tour of Viking Dublin. The villagers are played by real actors who give accounts of life in Viking days. The centre is open all year round.
Temple Bar was also the venue for the first performance of Handel's Messiah; this took place in 1742 at the Dublin Music Hall which had only been opened the previous year. The entrance and the original door are the only elements of the Music Hall which remain intact today.
one thing that is certain about Temple Bar is that you will never be short of something interesting to do or see.
Officially regarded at Dublin's 'cultural centre', the Temple Bar area could just as easily be dubbed 'Ibiza in the Rain'.
The huge congregation of pubs and bars turn this contained district into a party zone practically every night of the year. The area has experienced an extraordinary rebirth in recent years, with groovy bars, restaurants and trendy stores offering a one-stop district for Dublin's young.
Before making yourself too comfortable inside a glass of Guinness, head over to the western perimeter of Temple Bar and stroll down Dublin's oldest fare, Fishamble St. it was originally a Viking enclave, and dwellings from this time were dug up in 1980 - follow the symbols in the pavement to reach a mosaic outlining the results of the excavation.
Another 'old' milestone can be found in Parliament St where Read's Cutlers at No 4 lays claim to being the city's oldest shop, having been in operation for 240 years. Eustace St has a number of historic buildings , including the Presbyterian Meeting House which dates from 1715.
The maze of streets comprising Temple Bar is between Dame St and the river, west of College Green and the Bank of Ireland
You definetly have to enjoy some of your time at the pubs, they are beautiful, real fun, you'll love it!
Temple bar, between Dame Street and teh River Liffey is Dublin's most cultural quarter.Theatres, galleries, clubs, pubs...in a refreshing and bohemian atmosphere, the most colorful and vibrant part of the city!
I've been here only once... or maybe twice.
Though according to D, I was there a lot more than only twice.
If he says so...
Fondest memory: The fondest memory of Temple bar? Hmm...
Don't have it.
Favorite thing: 'A Good puzzle would be to cross Dublin without passing a pub' mused Leopold Bloom in James Joyce's famous novel Ulysses, and the task proves just as difficult today as it was in Joyce's time.
A pint of 'the stuff' (Guinness as it is often referred to) in one of Dublin's more than 700 pubs.
