Stayed in Dublin for mine and my friend's 30th's. First time ever to Dublin and best short break ever! Went to Temple Bar and couldnt fault it (well apart from the prices lol) . Amazing live music at night, friendly atmosphere and really relaxed.

OK for a quick look, but this is for tourists only as there is nothing much here Irish, including the people who were all foreign, especially those working in the bars and restaurants! The locals stay away, it really is an evening place for young people on stag or hens do's, so if you are not with a crowd suggest... More

For us, this is a great part of Dublin. Love the cobbled streets, quirky shops and cafes and of course the bars which are always bursting at the seams and some have live music all day long. The only drawback is the few dodgy characters who frequent here obviously in the hope of ripping off some poor tourist. We've come... More

Temple Bar is a small square mile right in the centre of Dublin filled with pubs, restaurants, myriad kitsch little shops, art galleries & the upmarket design yard. Oh yes, it is dominated by the Clarence Hotel, famously owned by U2. I like to bring new friends from abroad on a tour through Temple Bar, stopping off in perhaps 7... More

We liked this area to take the main picture saying Telmple Bar and buying some souvenirs. The bars and restaurantes just take advantage of being tourist attraction. Not so much to see there.

Live music throughout the day (at least on weekends, not sure about weekdays). Some is traditional Irish, some not, but still quite good. Great place to meet great people from all over.

Stopped in on our walkabout of Dublin and the Temple Bar area. Absolutely loved it! A great Irish pub with good food! The oysters are so fresh and flavourful. They also have a huge selection of delicious sandwiches.
