Pop star Pink is on Irish soil – and wandering around Temple Bar, apparently.

The singer is here for her Beautiful Trauma World Tour and has sold out gigs at the RDS.

So obviously, she needed a pint or two after all that jumping around on stage, right?

It was also the first time she performed in Ireland in five years – but she made p for it by zooming across the stadium on a zip wire.

She dropped into The Temple Bar pub for a quick one – who wouldn't?

The pub captioned the snaps of her and her husband Carey Hart, ''So today we had the pleasure of having the lovely Mr & Mrs @pink stop by the pub to quench their thirst after Pink’s rocking show in Dublin last night on her #beautifultraumatou.''

They continued, ''Ciere was super excited to meet them as you can see and said it was a pleasure to look after them. Thank you @pink for stopping by and being so lovely to all our staff. We look forward to seeing you again.''

Right, were heading to town and see if we can get a selfie because we LOVE her.



Gardaí from Pearse Street Garda station are currently investigating the sexual assault of a woman in Dublin's Temple Bar earlier this week.

According to emerging reports, a woman was assaulted in Bedford Lane on Tuesday morning at approximately 1am.

The lane, which is often used as a shortcut between the quays and Temple Bar, has a negative reputation among local business owners, with many calling  for it to be gated.

Speaking to the press, one local said: "It should be gated, without a doubt. They wanted to do it a couple of years ago but unfortunately it didn’t happen."

"I live and work on that lane-way and it’s really not a good place to be," they added.

Commenting on the ongoing investigation, a spokesperson for the Gardaí said: "We are investigating an incident of sexual assault that occurred in Bedford Lane at 1am on February 7."

It has been established that no arrests have yet been made.



According to the Dublin Inquirer, plans are being drawn up to improve the Temple Bar area of Dublin.

Temple Bar has had a number of issues throughout the years, from badly lit areas, to rough and broken grounds and has been named on of the worst areas for anti-social behaviour in the past.

Temple Bar Strategy

Dublin City Council is trying to change this, and on Monday, landscape architect Daibhi McDomhnaill, presented a mock plan for the renovation of the visitor favourite.

Some of the plans presented included the replacing of cobblestones and a new surface for cyclists; removing the footpaths; improving accessibility and putting in adequate illumination; an increase of public seating and increasing the greenery in the area.

Temple Bar Greening

According to the website: “A design team should be appointed by early next year, and then later any plans will go out to public consultation."

It'll be interesting to see the changes being made to the area.

If you're around Dublin city centre this Monday August 15 and you fancy a FREE cheeseburger – you might want to swing by the newly-revamped Gourmet Burger Kitchen

That's because to mark its reopening, the popular eatery will be doling out no fewer than 500 freebies. 

Explaining that the GBK cheeseburger is made from a "100 percent grass fed Irish beef burger, topped with applewood smoked Irish cheddar cheese served in a glazed sesame topped bun," a statement confirming the offer was released this afternoon to SHEmazing.

“These are exciting times for GBK Ireland,” the statement added. “And what better way to celebrate the opening than by giving away hundreds of our most popular burger.”

Some €3.5million has been spent doing up GBK's Temple Bar restaurant – and the space now boasts the likes of bespoke banquettes, retro style laminate tables, and enviable terrace seating outside.

Back in 2001, three Kiwi guys set up the first Gourmet Burger Kitchen in London. It now has a total of five restaurants in Dublin.



A mother-of-one left pub-goers gobsmacked when she showed off her impressive weight-lifting skills in Temple Bar.

Amy O'Halloran, from the UK, was celebrating her birthday over the weekend when she was challenged by her friends to lift a man they were chatting to in a pub.

Now, her friends know that Amy is an amateur powerlifter and a former cyclo-cross cyclist, so when the crowd outside the pub saw her impressive skills, they were shocked.

The British woman lifted the man 14 times above her head, which was captured in an Instagram clip.

She captioned the video, "This happened!… So funny, accrued a little audience and everything (sic)."

Powerlifting in a dress? Now, that's impressive.


If you're somebody who doesn't or can't drink, you probably know the struggle of trying to keep up with your plastered mates on New Years. 

You can go to the pub or club with them, but ultimately you'll either lose them or grow bored of their drunken antics. 

But for those who want to socialise, soberly, on New Years this year, there is another option. 

The Funky Seomra is an alcohol-free nightclub that has been running for the past seven years, yet mainly goes unnoticed. 

However, this year it's planning to be bigger and better than ever. 

The group is hosting an event at Filmbase in the heart of Dublin's Temple Bar. The night will begin at 9pm and run until 2.30am, with tickets going for €15 or €12 from here

There will be two dancefloors, three DJs, a smoothie bar and an organic cafe from The Happy Pear… Which sounds absolutely deadly, right?! 

David Mooney, the club organiser, said that these features will make the event unlike any other.

"Having massages, musicians, cafes, all makes it a very, very different atmosphere," he told The Journal

“New Year’s Eve is our busiest night. The people who come before know what to expect, but other people are a bit unaware.

“But you’re all in it together because you’re in the middle of Temple Bar but you’re the only place with no drink.”



While we’ve seen our fair shares of viral proposals, Laurence certainly set the bar high with his unique proposal to his girlfriend Rebecca.

Laurence was spotted popping the question to Rebecca with a pint of Guinness at Temple Bar on Monday. But this was no normal pint, as he had the special glass customised with his other half’s name as well as the big question itself.

Staff at Temple Bar have been sharing the happy moment on Facebook and Twitter: “We at The Temple Bar would like to congratulate Laurence and Rebecca on their recent engagement and wish them all the best for the future. The best proposal idea we’ve ever witnessed.”

Congrats to the happy couple, we can’t wait to see what they have in store for the big day!
