Temple Bar is a must if your visiting Dublin! The atmosphere is amazing and every pub you go into there is live irish music. Public were joining in and singing and it just made for a great experience.

Very nice place. I loved the traditional Irish music. They serve one of the best fresh guinness although it's very expensive place. It would be perfect if you don't feel you've been robbed after you have few pints.

This is where you need to go if you want a traditional pub with live singers and a good old sing song. Loads of old traditional pubs but go well stocked with cash because it's really expensive! This is my favourite place in Dublin though so worth the money.

Frankly ,as one who lives in Dublin,I stay away from this awful Disneyesque view of Dublin(and thats an insult to Disney) Spend your time in somewhere where ordinary suburbanites go at the weekend to Dun Laoghaire, Malahide, or Dalkey.Go to Wicklow for a day tour; nowhere in Europe,even Vienna or Reykjavik, have such stunning wild beauty so near a large...

Some people might call this a tourist trap, and to be fair it does cater to tourist. Putting that aside, it is still a great place to hang out. There are great garden spots to enjoy the occasional sunny day. There are also tons of nooks and crannies to while away the day. If I lived in Dublin, I would... More

A touristy rasa where the food and drink prices are high . Better quality and prices a short distance away from the main tourist areas .

At the start of my two week trip, I stayed a night in Dublin but didn't really get to do much. And the ending of my two week trip, we booked our last night in Dublin once more and went out exploring to try and find a sweet place to enjoy some drinks and food. I don't know how we... More

This is the great Temple Bar named after the area not the bar itself. It full of tourists and the prices for the alcohol is a bit higher than other places but you still have to go in just to see it. They have live music all day with different performers. Most bars don't start their entertainment until the evening.... More
