DescriptionTake a stroll through the vibrant pub-lined streets of Dublin’s Temple Bar district on a smartphone-powered audio tour. Go beyond the music and watering holes, and hear about some of the most interesting people connected to the district’s long history, from the city’s Viking origins, all the way to U2. Start the tour outside the Irish Houses of Parliament and along the way, you can quench your thirst at one of Temple Bar’s best pubs including the Porterhouse, Temple Bar Pub, Palace Bar (one of Dublin’s oldest pubs), and Foggy Dew (one of Ireland’s first craft beer pubs). Explore the area’s hidden corners and listen to lesser-known stories. Hear about Temple Bar’s origins, find out how it got its name, and discover the best way to enjoy your time here. Also, learn how the local government almost destroyed the whole place in the 1970s. Walk down cobblestoned streets and past a few of the city’s most famous landmarks including the Clarence Hotel, the Merchant’s Arch, the Viking Longboat statue, and Isolde’s Tower. Stand outside the medieval city wall’s boundary line. Along the way, stop by numerous cafés, restaurants, and pubs, like Crown Alley’s Vintage Cocktail Club, the Seafood Café by Niall Sabongi, and House of Read. Find out about the “Hellish” reputation the neighborhood once had. See some of the cultural district’s highlights, like 3 Olympia Theatre and Smock Alley Theatre. Snap photos of the Ha Penny Bridge, O’Connell Bridge, and the River Liffey. Take in the oldest building in all of Dublin, Christ Church Cathedral, and the Viking Museum next door, Dublinia. Hear about the famous musicians and poets who have hung around the area since the 1700s, including band U2, parliamentarian Henry Grattan, and German composer, George Frederick Handel. Leave with a greater appreciation for the district and a few stories in your pocket that most visitors never hear.
