Moore Street is a street in central Dublin, Ireland, off Henry Street, one of Ireland's main shopping streets. The famous Moore Street open air fruit and vegetable market is Dublin's oldest food market. The market there is considered to be a famous landmark on the northside of the city. Moore Street was the subject of the second CIVIC LIFE film by filmmakers Joe Lawlor and Christine Molloy, starring members of the Dublin-based African production company, Arambe.Easter RisingIrish Volunteers commanded by Patrick Pearse surrendered to British forces on 30 April 1916, from a terrace of houses on Moore Street at the ending of the Easter Rising. Five of the seven signatories of the Irish Proclamation of Independence—Patrick Pearse, James Connolly, Thomas Clarke, Joseph Plunkett and Sean MacDermott, as well as future leader Michael Collins—surrendered from the terrace.Planning controversyDublin City Council planned from 1998 to demolish the terrace to redevelop the area, but this was opposed by groups who held this terrace and the battlefield trail running from the GPO down Moore Lane and Henry Street and into Moore Street to be an important part of Irish history, some referring to the location as "Ireland's Alamo". The National Graves Association began its campaign in 2002 after been alerted to the removal of a commemorative plaque from the facade of No 16 by concerned citizen Patrick Cooney which led on to the setting up the "Save 16 Moore Street committee" in 2005. Numbers 14-17 Moore Street were declared a national monument in 2007, guaranteeing their retention.

  • We like to visit local food markets so we went to this market but we found a market in an ugly and very dirty area, whose products did not have much appeal. A huge disappointment. Although it is one of the markets of old grocery in the city, where is being gradually introduced the international market with some provenance Arab, African and Asian grocery stores.

  • Nothing out of the ordinary on the food market in Moore Street. But if you like fresh fruit or vegetables you will here find it. There is also a stand with fresh fish. Maybe I was expecting to find food stalls offering international dishes.

  • Moore Street is an area with huge historical value unfortunately this is not plainly evident and more needs to be done to show off this fact. However Moore Street has a more recent history as the location of a fresh fruit, veg and fish market for several decades. In recent years it has changed with the population of Ireland and is now multinational and has many phone and multinational shops. It is also the site of one of the main entrances into the Ilac centre which contains a good range of shops, a library and a mini chapel.
  • Good for local mobile shops and repairing centers. You can also buy cheap fruit s and vegetables but they last only for a day.
  • East meets west, asian african and Irish markets with a lot of history going back to 1916, a lovy atmosphere
  • Moore street provides us with a bit of old Dublin. The mams out chanting and selling their fruit and veg and seasonal goods. I pray it is preserved for generations to come.
  • The stall outside of the euro giant have great deals and the couple are very polite.

Where to stay in Dublin

Dublin offers everything from luxury hotels to eclectic guesthouses. Explore over 1,000 years of history in the city on foot by staying at one of the hotels or hostels in the city center. The south side of the river has always been a popular place to stay, particularly near Temple University or the tourist nightlife center Temple Bar, but a new crop of attractive options has popped up on the north side as well. For more affordable accommodations, try a hostel or make your way toward St. Stephen's Green for a more comfortable stay at a mid-range hotel. If the artistic spirit of Dublin is what beckoned you, spend your holiday in a guesthouse near the creative Lower Gardiner Street.
