Favorite thing 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.
Favorite thing 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
Favorite thing 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!
Favorite thing 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.
