The Temple Bar area of Dublin was lots of fun, a very lively scene! We went to Fitzsimmon's for dinner and some live music and Irish Dancing, and then to the Quays Irish Restaurant for some drinks and more music.

Lively place with many bars and restaurants to choose from....most with some music to enjoy. Our hotel was in Temple Bar and we could hear the music well past midnight. Go only if you want to let your hair done and enjoy the fun.

Maybe it was the location, a very touristy area of Dublin, but this bar was just ok. I have heard a lot about the Temple Bar, and I guess it is considered to be a "must see" when visiting Dublin, but the crowd was terrible...More

Temple Bar Hotel does not have a private shuttle. Take the bus. The airlink is $10 round trip. There are other inexpensive options too.
