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.

  • Moore street is one of the historic streets of Dublin, also known because of the food markets, there are also several shops and restaurants. Although it may look like a really cool place to visit is not so much. I think the thing that makes it unpleasant to cross is its appearance somewhat "degraded" species compared to the other streets of the city centre. You can find yourself so much, it's still nice to think that you are crossing what was once one of the centers of the city, but it remains a pleasant place for a visit. Ultimately a tourist the Councillor anyway, maybe just a quick passage.

  • For those looking for fresh produce, a good option are the stalls of the Moore Street. Most tourists just go through this street, but for those who want some fresh item as a fruit or a vegetable, it pays to think to visit.

  • The Moore Street was touted us in a travel guide as the local market, but unfortunately, there were only some some fruit and flower stalls. Possibly this was but the season (travel mid December 2016). As a selling point, however, we felt the starting point of this road: - ILAC shopping mall has its entrance from the street out - Romanian supermarket - Lidl - Tesco (at the northern end of the street)

  • 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!
