“FRESH OYSTERS!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

Thank you for the recommendation, Fodor's! (yes, I bought their travel guide like a true tourist.)

My friends and I wanted to try some Ireland oysters because we heard they were supposedly super fresh. We were running out of time on our hunt to find them when I realized, 'I've got my trusty guidebook!!' And that's how we ended up here.

It was 12 Euros for 6 oysters and a glass of wine. Since there were four of us, the lady was nice enough to give us 4 cups of wine (yes, plastic cups - it's a farmer's market, what do you expect!) They even threw in an extra oyster!

SO FRESH! SO BIG! (cue that's-what-she-said joke). Compared to NYC oysters, these babies looked like they were on steroids! They also have this dipping sauce (had onions and was really vinegar-y, but good. But if you don't like the sour, you should just take the oyster straight.)

Didn't eat anything else from other stands because we just had lunch. However, I believe they had shish kebabs, crepes, and bread. Oh and FYI - Sheridans Cheesemongers was there (saw this place on Anthony Bourdain when he went to Dublin so thought this might be worth mentioning).

Definitely check out this farmer's market!

“Saturday Mornings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

Greta place to visit early on a saturday morning for breakfast or an early lunch. Lovely food to eat there or take away. It could do with a few more seats or benchs in the area but there's lways the liffey walkway if you are stuck.

The weekly farmers market is a nice touch for everyone to test their tastebuds. Also attended many festivals and film shows here too, a real gem in templebar!

“Nothing Happening.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

I visited here during the morning time and found a drab, cold and dull square with nothing to recommend it, it may be lively when functions are on but i should be brightened up in normal time.
