Excellent atmosphere. Live music. Girls I'd recommend chunky heels or boots thanks to the cobbles. Be prepared to pay more of a premium in Temple Bar area.

This isn’t a super authentic place by any means, though I don’t think it pretends to be. It’s a very popular spot and on a Saturday in February, we were packed to the wall with very hot temperatures. The live music is quite good but...More

This is a bar area in Dublin with restaurants and bars with live music. Food and drink is more expensive in this area but worth it. Cobbled streets will it uncomfortable for wheelchairs.

Its one of the checklists when you visit Dublin so can’t miss it. However it might be bit touristy sometimes also drink a bit more expensive compare to other bars.

Hen Weekend in Temple Bar - Dublin (3 Replies)
Hi, I'm going on a Hen weekend to the temple bar area and am wondering if anyone can recommend any nice bars, places to eat etc. Anywhere that has live music, comedy or any kind of entertainment? I'm told we'll be going to the Sin Bar/club - is it any good? Also we'll probably be in Hen t-shirts/fancy dress are the bars relatively welcoming or is there anywhere we should avoid on a Hen do?

Don't expect to be greeted with open arms , hens/stags are tolerated most everywhere but do bear in mind , you are not the only people dressing up. On an average weekend, there are at least 5/6 hen nights multiply this by 52 weeks by 15 years and you will see how apathetic we are. most of the bars have live music and somewhere like the Hard Rock Cafe or Thunder Road are places you might enjoy for dinner.

Hi there Me and the missus will be arriving at Dublin airport a la Ryanair, we will land at 9am Tuesday morning. What would the cheapest form of transport be to the George Frederic Handel Hotel located on Fishamble Street Christchurch / Temple Bar Dublin 8 We will have 1 suitcase. What would the rough cost of a taxi be? All help is much appreciated. Rob

Hi, A taxi would cost around €15/€20 into Handels hotel (lovely by the way!) Getting a bus is definately the cheap option and goes every few mins frm the airport...I think its about €3. The bus however will drop you in the city cntr about a 10/15 min walk from the hotel as its along the quays and the bus cant go down that side frm the airport. If you're getting the bus, get off at Connolly stn then jump on the num 90 down to Handels...the bus driver will let you know where to get off if you...More
