    This is the area you need to go for shopping and walking around the city. This is especially true on Sunday when most shops and restaurants are closed in dublin. There are few people on the streets in other areas but a bar tender pointed us back to temple bar for restaurants that are still opened on sunday. When we returned again on Monday the situation is completely different. Lots of people in the area and all shops and restaurants are opened so we have a lot of choices to choose from.

    We dropped in as part of our walk around Dublin. It's a small undercover market with traders selling street food and local produce. We tried some of the mulled apple with irish whiskey - really good! Also veggie samosa, olives, potato cakes and pulled pork. All really good street food. Drop in and have a look aroud. Doesn't take long and well work stopping by

    Located at College Green – just opposite Trinity College, this beautiful building was originally the House of Lords in Ireland and retains the décor and artefacts of its previous history. Just go into the bank and in the main teller hall there are displays of historical coinage and financial instruments, which is worth a look. However, you can sometimes go into the Lords’ Chamber, now a meeting room – just ask, it’s worth a look for 5 minutes

    The Wall is Dublin’s tribute to Irish musicians is a photography exhibition on the wall of the Rock ‘n Roll Museum. You will see such people as Sinead O’Connor, U2, Bob Geldof and Luke Kelly. Opened in 1999, the wall is located in the famous Temple Bar area. Be sure to look up as you walk to the bar.

    We visited last Sunday and, although the exhibit is not complete at the moment, it was just nice to know that Ireland remembers one of its best. I feel that they could do a lot more with this.

    This sculpture was created as a reminder of the Viking heritage of Ireland after long ship was found at Wood Quay during archaeological investigations for the Civic Offices.

    The sculpture is roughly in three parts. The two ends of the sculpture are the "skeletal" structures of a stereotypical ends of Viking boat and between the two ends are benches roughly as they would have been in the olden days. Except now the benches are occupied by city slickers instead of warriors. It’s a nice and quaint little sculpture and will no doubt become a landmark of Dublin.

    On this commercial building to the west of Temple Bar. Ireland has few arts and craft inspired buildings. This is one. The panels are inspiring.

    Located at the very core of Trinity College, George Salmon's statue is finely built in white marble. Salmon was the college's provost from 1888 until his death in 1904. He strongly opposed women receiving degrees from the university. Coincidentally, after his death, some of them were firstly admitted as undergraduates.

    It may look weird - positive title but only 3 stars.
    Well as amazing story is behind the tower - the way how it is presented is a disgrace.
    You can't come close - and you look behind the gates.
    It will be worth visiting if you are nearby - but not to make it as a main destination.

    Fantastic selection of eclectic and imaginative print designs to choose from.
    All the better that they are created by local Irish artists!
    I ordered 2 prints online from the website which was smooth and user friendly. I was thrilled with the speed of delivery and quality of the printed result.
    When I contacted them after delivery, Customer Service was above and beyond what I could have expected. The response was prompt, friendly, extremely kind and helpful.
