Live music, cold beer and tons of people! A fun night in Dublin, for sure, and Temple Bar lived up the hype I'd heard all about.

We walked through Temple Bar and found it depressing. Tons of bats catering to youthful drinkers and tourists. Take 5 minutes to walk through to tick it off your list of thins to do in Fublin and move on to more enjoyable sites.

The real Temple Bar has live music and a lot of character. The surrounding area is full of pubs for music and good valued meals

This neighborhood is very colorful and there is live music everywhere you turn! There is also great food, though it does tend to be expensive.

Temple bar is the Las Vegas of Dublin. Full of bars, live music and a never-ending buzz. Great if it’s your things but the locals tend to hide on the north side of the river. For an authentic experience, go up there! (Ps. The beer...More

Good restaurants around the around area. Lots of Iris pub. It's a good place to feel the Irish people night life.

When I was there a couple brought two young kids in (around 6 years old) and they could have a soft drink. It was about 4pm and there didn't appear to be an issue. I think you probably wouldn't want to take them into a bar... More
