U2 Travel Guide

U2 Travelguide » Dublin » Temple Bar


Temple Bar is the famous clubbing and drinking district directly in the heart of Dublin, close to O'Connell Bridge. Here you can find numerous pubs and clubs, and streets are crowded with tourists and partying Irish. Many of the described U2 sights are also located here, such as the Clarence Hotel or the Project Arts Centre. U2 posed in this quarter, that also features the Half Penny Bridge from 1816 (until 1919 one had to pay half a penny to cross the bridge), for their first photo shoots.

In and around Temple Bar there used to be loads of record stores, that may offer one or the other rarity or lucky find, but many of them doesn't exist any more. Anyway, be careful, though, not to pay through your nose, or even be conned, as often the CD(R)s offered are of low quality. And who knows whether U2 really signed that poster or album cover on the wall?
