Description: South Dublin Village Walks - Templeogue Step 1/2 The Morgue. The Templeogue Inn, better known in Dublin as The Morgue, is the village’s only pub. The clocktower on the building houses a working model steam tram, which references the pub’s history. In the 19th and early 20th centuries, the Dublin and Blessington Steam Tram passed through Templeogue so close to the road that many deaths occurred. The remains of those unfortunate enough to have crossed paths with the tram were often sheltered in the pub until they were removed. Hence, the pub acquired the permanent, morbid nickname.
