We stayed in Temple Bar and had all our dinners there. Lots of choices if you're looking for Irish pubs complete with live music and lots of action.

Good live music but too packed and jammed in together to enjoy the experience had to leave unfortunately for this reason after one drink

A great place to walk through and stop off for a pint or possibly two. We went to two different pubs and prices for two pints ranged from €11.30 to €12.90

Right at the centre of the city, it is a lively, full of pubs and restaurants area. Very nice walk, but very crowded.

I stayed in Temple Bar prior to a 6 day PADDYWAGON tour of Ireland, and yet again was not disappointed. I have visits temple bar pubs each of my three trips to Ireland and this is the place to go in Dublin for the young at heart for a bit of an Irish singalong and of course Guinness. Highly recommend

Temple bar s the lively part of Dublin with plenty of places o eat and lots of bars with music an craic. The tourist cetre comes with a price premium and you may want to wander a couple of streets back from the River Leffy for a better value evening.

If you are looking for a tourist nightclub scene then go. If you are looking for traditional Irish music this isn't it. It's full of loud drunks listening to loud music. Not my idea of fun but it may be yours.
