The Temple Bar, Dublin 2

The history of Temple Bar dates back to 1599, a teacher and philosopher, Sir William Temple built his house and gardens on land reclaimed from the River Liffey. 🏡 By the end of the 17th century the area had acquired the name it still goes by today, Temple Bar. 🏢

In 1707 a new customs house was built on the site where the Clarence Hotel now stands and soon after warehouses, taverns, theatres, and even brothels appeared throughout the areas. The boom lasted barely a century when the new Custom House Quay was built across the Liffey in 1791. Temple Bar fell into disrepair and became an inner-city slum until the mid-20th century.

The state transport company CIE started buying up property here in the 1980s with the view of building a huge bus depot. 🚌 The area started to let out the empty premises at cheap rates which attracted many artists, fringe boutiques, and alternative eateries. This lead to the area becoming a unique bohemian buzzing quarter. The Irish state got involved in 1991 and set up a non-profit company to oversee the future development of a new quarter known as Temple Bar.

The Temple Bar was established in 1840 and is now one of the famous pubs in Ireland that boast 450 rare and interesting Whiskeys making it the country’s largest collection. 🥃
