Temple Bar Traders (Traders in the Area Supporting the Cultural Quarter Ltd) was set up in 2003 by a number of traders in the Temple Bar Area. The company’s mission statement is ‘to promote the arts tourism, trade and commerce in the Temple Bar area.
Temple Bar Traders is an independent organisation, which represents traders in the Temple Bar area. Membership of Temple Bar Traders is voluntary and we now have over 90 members, representing a broad spectrum of businesses, organisations and resident associations in Temple Bar. These include restaurateurs, hoteliers, publicans, retailers, cultural centres, charities, resident groups and service providers who operate in Dublin’s Cultural Quarter. These groups have come together to form Temple Bar Traders with the aim of enhancing the local environment and promoting Temple Bar both at home and abroad. Each member pays a voluntary annual fee and these funds are used to improve the physical environment, organise events, liaise with local authorities and to market the area nationally and internationally.
