Temple Bar is one of the central tourist areas of Dublin, and one of the most visited sets of streets on the island of Ireland. This is its history.

For as long as we have records, Temple Bar has been at the heart of Dublin’s cultural life. Its history is one of design, craft, publishing, the performing arts, coffee houses, political debate and great colour and energy. The world’s favourite oratorio and chorus – ‘Hallelujah’ from Handel’s Messiah – had its world premiere in Temple Bar in 1742 in Neals’ Musick Hall, and a tradition of great musical vibrancy has continued there over time. Today, it is one of the central tourist areas of Dublin, and one of the most visited sets of streets on the island of Ireland. This is its history.
