Temple Bar
Dublin 2. 

Until a few years ago, Temple Bar was known more for its derelict buildings and badly-lit streets, but with the recent transformation (still in progress) it's now become Dublin's Cultural Quarter.
There are several new cultural centres, all within a few minutes stroll of each other, many housed in new buildings of unique architectural design. New squares and re-built streets are full of cafes, restaurants and pubs; and on Saturdays, there's the Book Fair and the Food Market. Several music events take place in and around Temple Bar throughout the year, and in the summer there are extra events, including outdoor film screenings and children's entertainments.

For details on current events, contact the Temple Bar Culture Line at 6715717.
