Fun, People watching central!

This is a great spot to go and enjoy all of the action of Dublin! It's always crowded, but always has live music to enjoy. It's a must-see and spot to visit when in Dublin!

This is the place to go if you want to see a lot of live music, but be warned it is very expensive in this area and is full of tourists. If youre looking for something cheaper and more authentic go to the Camden area. But temple bar is definitely not to be missed! Great for a night or 2... More

A great area. Plenty of cafes to suit all budgets and lots of live music venues/bars for that authentic touch of Irish drink and music combined. If here you must stop at the Temple Bar for an Irish coffee and a photo. It gets very busy here and is very touristy but... If you make it here before 12pm, you... More

Templebar is a lovely part of the city, plenty of nice restaurants, and pubs with great atmosphere, but it is one of the more expensive places in Dublin, especially for food and drink. Always very busy in the evenings and weekends especially.

Last week I visited Dublin for a first time. I stayed in a nice studio close to the center. Before my visit I never expected to find a place so crazy like Dublin so North in Europe. The people were very friendly, happy and inviting that made me wanting to stay more. Specially the area of Temple Bar. That street... More

It's the cultural centre of the city. Plenty of busy bars with music and beers flowing. Prices are about €5 - €6 a pint. Just go with the flow and try plenty of bars and beers. If you fancy a chilled out upmarket drink try the Morgan
