Temple Bar, Dublin

(3.8/5 based on 10,000+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan to visit Temple Bar and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Dublin attractions using our Dublin holiday planner.

  • Area of dublin, for a drink, eat, listen to different groups of music in pubs, but also for partying, or bury the lives of newlyweds. Always a great atmosphere, especially through music. Some cultural place are close. ...
