The river Liffey winds through Dublin and has been the lifeblood of the city for centuries. Along its southern bank, the neighborhood of Temple Bar has become one of Dublin's top tourist attractions. Bounded on the north by the river, on the south by Dame Street, to the east by Westmoreland Street, and to the west by Fishamble Street, this small area is the cultural heart of Ireland's capital by day and the center of its notorious nightlife by night.
Close to the center of Dublin, Temple Bar goes back centuries. Known as St. Andrew's Parish during the medieval period, Temple Bar was once outside the city walls. This exposed it to attacks by the native Irish who resented rule by the Anglo-Normans, and so the area began to be abandoned in the 14th century.
By the 17th century, however, the city was growing, and the area was once again seen as valuable. The marshy land was reclaimed, and houses were built along the street that came to be known as Temple Bar, named after the wealthy Temple family who built a house there. But the area didn't remain a playground of the rich forever. Beginning in the 18th century, it became a center for prostitution and fell into decline. It remained a seedy area right up until the 1980s, when the Irish government began to rehabilitate the neighborhood. Because of its former poverty, the neighborhood contained many charming old buildings. Once these were renovated, bars, restaurants, art galleries, nightclubs, and other cultural enterprises began to move in. Now, Temple Bar is home to the Irish Photography Center, the Irish Film Institute, the New Theater, and the Irish Stock Exchange. It's also home to some of Dublin's most celebrated pubs and bars.
Temple Bar has been, in some ways, a victim of its own success. At one point, the city banned bachelor and bachelorette parties from the area due to the noise and chaos they created. The area remains extremely popular for parties and nightlife with travelers from all over Europe and around the world. Still, there's more to this neighborhood than partying.
Take in the atmosphere of Temple Bar Square. The heart of the neighborhood, this lively square is surrounded by bars and restaurants. Don't miss the Temple Bar Book Market which takes place here on weekends.
Eat like a Dubliner at the Temple Bar food market. This open-air market is held every Saturday in Meetinghouse Square. It's the perfect place to try the produce of the region and some unique Irish delicacies. It's also a great place to pick up gifts for people back home.
Step back in time at Dublinia. Located in St. Michael's Hill Church, this quirky attraction uses actors and re-created streets to bring to life the history of Viking and medieval Dublin.
Have a drink in a classic 19th-century Irish pub at the Temple Bar Pub. Home to the neighborhood's only outdoor beer garden, this pub is a legendary drinking establishment and one of the most famous institutions in the area. It also hosts live music most nights.
Find unique items at Cow's Lane Designer Mart. Popular with the trendiest residents of Dublin, this clothing and craft market is held outdoors during the summer months and moved inside for the winter. The items you'll find here aren't available anywhere else, and in many cases, you'll get to talk to the designers and manufacturers themselves.

Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!
This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!
Can’t believe I haven’t used this service until now. So easy & convenient. I 100% recommend.
