Dublin Decoded: Temple Bar, Decoded!

Join Dublin Decoded for an architectural and historical tour of Temple Bar.

Temple Bar was the centre of Dublin’s bustling shipping, trading and mercantile community from the Viking and Norman medieval era, to the Early Modern era and beyond.

On this tour we will explore both the historic and the contemporary, with discussion on everything from a 1500s synagogue for Portuguese Sephardic Jews, previously hidden down a tiny side street, to explosive factories for revolutionaries, to top-class contemporary architecture.

Our tour will contain ideas and discussion on everything from archaeology to architectural detailing, to forgotten history, moving buildings, green architecture, public art and the public realm.
