Photographer's Note

Temple Bar has been shown on TE before, here is my version.

The Temple Bar is one of the most famous pubs in Dublin. Its history goes back to 1599 when Sir William Temple (the portrait on the left), a renowned teacher, and philosopher, built his house and gardens here on newly reclaimed land around Temple Bar.

The term 'Temple Bar' strictly refers to a notional bar or barrier across the route, but it is also commonly used to refer to the 17th century ornamental Baroque arched gateway designed by Sir Christopher Wren, which spanned the road until its removal in 1878.

The Temple Bar area is promoted as Dublin's 'cultural quarter' and as a centre of Dublin's nightlife and a tourist destination.

Reading the choice of food that is painted on the window, it all sounds delicious and worth a visit; something that we did not take advantage of when we visited.

Thanks for looking.
