Culture

The Temple Bar Company has initiated and curated a series of successful cultural events in the area over the past 20 years. These include Temple Bar TradFest, Dublin’s largest festival of Irish music and culture, which contributes over €4million to the local economy and is attended by over 25,000 people every year. Festival of Politics is Dublin’s only event dedicated to political debate and designed to get people talking. Working with the Latvian community we run Latvian Culture Day, celebrating ethnic diversity in Ireland. Over the summer months we also run a number of outdoor community events on public spaces in Temple Bar including Family Fun Days, Music Days and Outdoor Arts Exhibitions.

 

tv production

In recent times the Temple Bar Company has produced a number of highly successful TV shows in partnership with Born Optimistic. When faced with the global pandemic and the dessimation of the tourism and live events The Temple Bar Company had to re-imagine a way of reaching Irish and internatinal audiences.  Out of this grew Ireland in Music. It was devised as a cultural & tourism TV product for international distribution.  Ireland in Music is a high-quality musical programme with some of Irelands best musicians, all expertly filmed against the backdrop of Irelands most stunning tourism locations including Temple Bar and Dublin City Centre. Ireland in Music was

area management

Pre-Covid Temple Bar had a daily footfall of over 65,000 people or 22 million per annum. In order to manage these numbers, The Temple Bar Company provides area cleaning services in partnership with Dublin City Council. We have a team of 6 full-time cleaning operatives who powerwash and litter pick the streets and back lanes of Temple Bar on a daily basis. While Covid has impacted on footfall in Temple Bar and Dublin City Centre we continued to clean and maintain the area during the pandemic to ensure Temple Bar remained one of the cleanest areas in Dublin City and was ready for when the area could re-

Over the years we have partnered with Dublin City Council on a number of light and art installation projects on the streets of Temple Bar helping to animate the area, in particular the back lanes, to prevent them falling into disrepair and prevent anti-social behavior. Known as Love the Lanes Initiative, we have worked with a variety of Irish and international artists creating art that has encouraged positive engagement on the laneways and also has actively encourage visitors to these spaces.
