The cultural quarter of Dublin today is very popular among locals and tourists at the same time. Barra an Tempail how Temple Bar is called in Irish today is home to many museums, schools and banks. When the sun sets the quarter transforms in a lively party area with many pubs that often have life music.
A crazy mix of locals and foreigners shape the character of this attractive quarter. At night most people focus on Fleet St, where most pubs, restaurants and nightclubs are located.
Where to go
Some good pubs include:
- The Porterhouse
- The Oliver St. John Gogarty Pub
- The Temple Bar
- Copperface Jacks
Prices in Ireland are about 30 % more expensive than in countries like Germany, Netherlands or Austria. For a pint of Guinness you can expect to pay about 4-5 €, same counts for a pint of lager.
If you prefer mixed drinks be ready to pay a ridiculous amount of money. Gin Tonic is on average about 9 €.
Interesting bunch of people
Visiting Temple Bar while in Dublin is totally worth it. The stories you hear people telling about crazy and friendly Irish who just like to enjoy their beer and dance the night away are all real and absolutely fun when you are around them. Expect to meet interesting people from all around the world having a great night out!
