Temple Bar, Dublin

#1 of 12 in Neighborhoods in Ireland
Neighborhood · Other
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 is dirty, full of graffiti, with drunks seating on the sidewalks drinking and homeless on the streets. Not a pretty city. The Bar is small and not hard to find. The only great thing about it...  more »
  • This is a must on a pub crawl. Several rooms in the bar and they check you for vaccination before they let you in. We went both nights while in Dublin. Love that place.  more »
