The Market bar is one of the best wheelchair accessible restaurant/bars in the hood.
Fade Street was originally a part of Dublin’s 19th century red-light district, nick-named “Monto”, which stretched from Montgomery Street up to Talbot Street. It became the largest red-light district in Europe with over 1600 prostitutes working there at its peak.
Nowadays the prostitutes are gone and the place is now a part of what locals call “the creative quarter”, with many new restaurants, coffee shops and quirky boutiques, residing in the 250 year old buildings. Fashionable, beautiful and full of character, Fade Street is one of the most diverse places in Dublin.
The Market Bar was the best wheelchair Friendly restaurant/bar I found in the area, the place is pretty accessible with wide ramps and doors. It has an accessible toilet that is kept locked (ask for keys behind the bar), tables at an accessible height with plenty room for knees and wheelchair and the staff seem to be well trained to accommodate wheelchair users, they were very friendly moving aways chairs and choosing the best table so I could roll around.
The Market Bar has a chilled out atmosphere, tasty food, good beers and has this old building used to be a factory before, it has huge high ceiling and red brick walls that make the place look pretty cool with all the art work and old shoes on the walls. It reminds me of New York's bars.
Pretty cool place and pretty cool vibe.
I would highly recommend it to any wheelchair traveller looking for a great atmosphere and good food while in Dublin.
