history • The republican revolutionary group, the Society of the United Irishman, was formed in a meeting in a tavern in Eustace Street in 1791. • Many times, temple bar was in danger because loads of property developers wanted to destroy this area for building. But its unfashionability probably saved it. These property developers destroyed much of the city's historic architecture during the 1960s.
Present day • Unlike the areas surrounding it, Temple Bar has preserved its medieval street pattern. It is promoted as "Dublin's cultural quarter" and has a lively nightlife that is popular with tourists. • Tempe bar is the area of the location of many Irish cultural institutions, including the Irish Photography Centre , the Irish Film Institute, among others.
