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, 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.

  • Some people may no and others don't this street do hold a market stalls full of fine home grow fruit veg ect I must say I enjoyed my time on moor street 
  • Moore Street is a fundamental commercial part of Dublin! There are many shops from where ever so you can find what you are looking for, since seasoning to electronics! Nice spot for shopping! 
  • If on the stands are quite ok. But otherwise a dark, rather dreary side street with little flair. So you missed nothing, if it passes just off!

  • When I first came here it felt like I entered a different world, but I ended up loving this street. It's kind of like time has stopped here ages ago and the atmosphere here is great.
  • Very lively St, where time stopped years ago! The true good auld Dublin lives here. Very historic also with regards to the 1916 rising with Moore lane just around the corner. It can look and feel a bit rough at first sight, but you learn to appreciate that!
  • Needs renovation and some dodgy people hang around here. Traders themselves are great though, you'll definitely get a deal!
  • Fresh fruits for cheap. I'd definitely miss the traders if they're sent away.
  • Fruit, fish and flower stalls. Not great quality. Lots of little ethnic shops. And people selling illegal cigarettes and tobacco!
