TEMPLE BAR – DUBLIN, IRELAND

I took this photo in Ireland in 2005.  It’s the Temple Bar pub in the Temple Bar area of Dublin.  In the last twenty or so years, this area has enjoyed a great refurbishment and transformation from an area which was unsafe to walk in, even in the day time, to an area which is now trendy and full of tourists.  Members of the Irish band U-2 bought the Clarence Hotel and after it was renovated, it became one of “the” places to stay in Dublin.  Temple Bar is right next to the River Liffey and has great shops, trendy restaurants and many, many pubs.  This is one of them.  Actually, my favorite pub in this area is the St. John Gogarty, but I don’t think I have a photo of it!  Note the cobblestone street at the lower right.  This area was used, in part, when the film FAR & AWAY was being filmed in Dublin in the early 1990’s.
