Temple Bar#13 in Best Things To Do in Dublin
Price & Hours
- 4.0Food Scene
Often compared to Bourbon Street in New Orleans, this neighborhood is Dublin's famous party hub. During the day, this district thrives on artistic vision, featuring numerous independent galleries and performance art venues. At night, dozens of pubs open their doors to those looking to share a pint of Guinness and click their heels to spirited Irish music.
Many visitors say the district has become more of a tourist trap than an authentic representation of Dublin's pub culture, but while in Dublin it is a sight one must see. Pull up a chair, order a (overpriced) pint and enjoy the music.
You'll find this district on the south bank of the River Liffey, a 5-minute walk north of Dublin Castle. Keep in mind hours vary by vendor, as do prices. For more on the neighborhoods businesses and special events, visit its official website.
