If you like old streets full of history, then we recommend you to go to Temple Bar through Merchant’s Arch.

Easy to find, its access starts from the Liffey (on Wellington Quay), and goes down towards Temple Bar.

At its entrance you will find the mythical Merchant’s Arch Pub, a local Irish pub, known for its remarkable architectural building. A historical building, in which is located a retro and cosy Irish pub, which surfs on the traditions and the authenticity. (A must for lovers of traditional and grandiose Irish pubs).

Even if the street is quite short, it remains dear to the Dubliners. It is a district strongly impregnated by the Georgian style. A typical Dublin style, with red brick, and big cobblestones on the ground… This street is in itself evocative of the cultural identity of the Irish capital: you can find all the markers dear to Dublin.

Welcoming shops, local Irish pubs, old stones, and an extremely busy street despite its narrowness. A street of human size, which is often teeming with people, and which is often the place to be for shopping addicts, local craftsmen, and confidential corners where it is good to drink a tea or a coffee in the warmth, sheltered from a rainy episode. Don’t hesitate to take a tour. The street will then lead you to the heart of the Temple Bar district, with its pubs and restaurants.
