Moore Street, Dublin
(2.4/5 based on 110 reviews on the web)
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.

  • The Moore Street is a small street running parallel to O'Connell O'Connell Street in the northern city of Dublin. Also an entrance to the ILAC Centre, the biggest Mall of Dublin is located just off the road. The narrow street is dominated by small shops. Various stalls offering fruit and vegetables in the focus are on the road itself. This small market has the flair of other markets, especially in southern Europe, but does not begin. Conclusion: You missed nothing not coming over here.

  • They sell fruits and vegetables at really cheap prices. However not all their produce is fresh or of quality. Sometimes the apples on display a brazenly rotten. The tomatoes in your bag may look more bruised then when they were on the stall shelf. It's probably just as worth it if not more so to shop at the nearby tesco or Lidl. Shop here at your own peril.
  • Croí na cathrach
  • Full of fresh vegetables and fruits... a lot deals.... and nearby shopping center.. good place to so grocery shopping .
  • 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!
