Temple Bar
Temple Bar, located on the south bank of River Liffey in Dublin, Ireland, is centrally located between Liffey, Dame Street, Westmoreland Street, and Fishamble Street. This is the city's cultural quarter, boasting a vibrant nightlife scene. Tourists flock to the area to enjoy themselves at the Palace Bar, the Temple Bar Pub, Oliver St. John Gogarty's, and the Auld Dubliner. The entire area has an estimated resident population of 3,000. Previously known as St. Andrews Parish, it was once a suburb of the AngloSaxon area of Dublin in medieval times. Situated outside the city walls at the time, it often came under attack. Historians disagree on whether the area was named after the Temple family, who had a house and gardens there in the early 17th century, or after the London district.

By 1999, stag and bachelorette parties were actively discouraged because of the scenes of drunkenness that often spilled out into the streets, but this rule seems to have relaxed in more recent years, allowing such scenes to continue. This may be a problem for tourists staying the night in the area if they are unable to sleep soundly in a noisy area or for those who dislike crowds. The area's popularity may also be a factor in the high prices set at many establishments there.
Apart from bars and nightclubs, the area is also home to various art, culture, and film institutes, as well as the Irish Stock Exchange and the central bank.
Exploring Fleet Street
Fleet street in Dublin is likely named for the famous London street, which itself was named for an underground river in London. Various landmarks in the Temple Bar area (including the Temple Bar name itself) were potentially named after London landmarks as well.

It is a very small street, but it is crammed full of hotels or dining options. Almost every building on this street is either a hotel or contains a café, restaurant, or pub. The Morgan hotel is located here, as well as the area's own Hard Rock Café. In stark contrast to the contemporary, cosmopolitan Hard Rock, The Palace Bar features a Victorian style. For small, convenient purchases, there's a Tesco store here too.

CRUNCH FITNESS PREMIER ASTON QUAY

Car Parking
It can be quite the ordeal trying to find a parking spot in the busy city center of Dublin. To combat this, guests of the Morgan hotel have been given a number of options. For one thing, the Morgan provides parking slots in the Park Rite underground car park, located on Fleet Street. This car park is not too far away from the hotel, but parking fees will apply. It is open throughout the week, all day long. Valet parking service is available. This particular car park offers 393 regular parking spaces and 11 disabled parking spaces. Height restrictions of 2.1 meters apply. A special evening or overnight rate is available, as well as hotel discounts. To get the hotel rate, the parking ticket must be stamped by the reception desk of a participating hotel. If the underground car park is full, however, guests can still check out Brown Thomas or the Drury Street Car Park, which are located nearby.

The Park Rite car park is within reach of Temple Bar, the Irish Film Center, Grafton Street, Trinity College, Olympia Theatre, Henry Street, Central Bank, and O'Connell Street.

Park Rite, a distinguished Irish service provider, offers secure paid parking spaces, with several spaces for disabled drivers as well. It manages a wide range of car parks, which charge different fees, based on location.
REVIEWS
LovinDublin is an excellent website to peruse if you're planning to visit any of Dublin's pubs or restaurants. It is chock full of handy advice and lists the Morgan as one of the city's best places to grab a mojito

Here the Guardian reports that Ian Belcher recommended the Morgan as an option for a one-night stand or a dirty weekend. You have my admiration if you follow his advice.

Andrea Valentino, a writer on the Telegraph Travel website, recommends that travelers to Dublin should stay at The Clarence, The Hampton or The Morgan.

Booking.com has generally favorable reviews, along with a few negative ones. Most users are in agreement over the convenience afforded by the hotel's location, particularly for those who need to be close to tourist spots and who want to explore Dublin. The hotel's chic, funky style is quite popular among guests. Its lively cocktail bar offers a good break from the other pubs that focus on Guinness beers. The latter are common across Dublin. Some suites offer a private balcony that is typically appreciated. Guests often said they liked their comfortable rooms, but some pointed out that the furniture and facilities seemed to be outdated. This is a matter of perspective though. The customer service experience at the reception desk seems to vary across guests, where some found the staff to be indifferent to their needs if not outright rude. Some guests complained that their rooms did not include the advertised bathrobes or slippers, but this was easily fixed by the hospitality staff or the reception desk. As with anything, each person's experience varies according to their perspective, and for the most part, the hotel has received good reviews.

On this website, we also consider reviews listed on Yelp because they tend to offer a somewhat different point of view compared with reviews left on traditional hotel booking sites or other travel web-sites. For instance, Liat F. recalls enjoying a few expensive glasses of wine, some Jaeger shots, a round or two of Guinness, and some dancing to the tunes played by a cool DJ. Ian P., on the other hand, helpfully provides definitions of the word "swish" from the Oxford English Dictionary. These kinds of personal, quirky reviews are unlikely to show up on a site like booking.com. Taking a more practical view of the hotel and its surroundings, some reviewers have mentioned the noise coming from the many bars in the area and the street. The noise can extend to the wee hours of the morning since this is a central location for the city's nightlife.
