Temple Bar’s Live Camera will go online tomorrow after two months off-air to facilitate upgrades.
The popular camera has been streaming the antics of the Temple Bar pub for almost ten years.
A live webcam that looks down on Dublin’s famous Temple Bar will go back online on Wednesday, following a two-month hiatus to allow for upgrades on the stream.
It went offline just after St Patrick’s Day, when it showed the streets packed with crowds drinking pints and wearing green hats from 10am.
The stream was set up in November 2012 by EarthCam, a US-based company that provide webcam content from across the world. Users can go on from anywhere and watch a live feed of the likes of Times Square in New York, Washington DC, Abbey Road in London and many more.
Those living abroad who may miss the craic of a busy weekend in town can log on and see the madness as it happens with the live camera. If you’re lucky, you may even spot someone doing the catwalk through the streets again like back in the earlier days of the pandemic in 2020.
After two months, the new upgrade means the stream is crisper than before. A spokesperson from EarthCam said: “The new technology for this camera means an even clear, wider and more vibrant view with amazing night-time clarity.”
This particular webcam is “extremely popular with viewers” and has clocked up an impressive 84,762,373 page views.
In relation to the busy area, the spokesperson said: “Having a camera on popular tourist destinations provides everyone a way to visit these well-known spots – even if they don’t have the chance to physically travel there.”
There is also a camera placed inside the Temple Bar Pub, which is good to be aware of if you find yourself having a few pints there.
The Temple Bar Live Camera will be back up streaming from tomorrow on EarthCam’s website, and there are guaranteed to be a few characters on it when it does.
