Create an itinerary including Temple Bar
Capture Dublin's street culture at Temple Bar, a former slum now recognized for its vibrant nightlife. In the 1980s this neighborhood on the south bank of the Liffey River offered cheap rent to artists and young entrepreneurs, and quickly became the city's foremost cultural quarter. The neighborhood's cobbled streets offer family-friendly attractions during the day, including shops, restaurants, and galleries. After dark this riverside neighborhood transforms into a magnet for rowdy partygoers, attracted by the quarter's many pubs and bars. If daylight activities seem a bit more appealing, visit one of the area's four markets, offering everything from rare books and vintage clothes to organic foods and decorative arts.

  • Dublin, and indeed Ireland, has a wealth of good pubs. If you want to see one or more of them avoid this area like the plague. Ask a local for a recommendation. I doubt any of them will tell you to...

  • Really not my cuppa. So touristy, although if we had given it more of a chance perhaps we would have come across something we would have liked!
