I follow a lot of web content and subscriptions on Youtube, so you can imagine my horror when I hear from channels I follow telling of how they felt that the whole area was like visiting a drunken Disney theme-park. Indeed, there's not much good...More

Temple bar has an amazing atmosphere but way too expensive. I always recommend tourists visit temple bar on their trip to get a stereotypical view of Dublin!

Though the place was packed with people, the music was amazing though and with a glass of guinness everything else didnt really matter. They didn't accept credit cards when i was there as their machines were down, so might want to bring cash.

This 3 is 4 block area was once full of actual barristers (lawyers). There are still a few offices left between all the pubs and hostels and small hotels. Many small, renovated and brightly painted buildings with flowers. Great to wander through but I wouldn’t...More
