Definitely go to see it, but head to a local pub to take in the culture with some of the locals. You won't find the locals here. Cost is very high in comparison to other places.

We had the most festive, fun-filled lunch at Temple Bar. We had smiles ear to ear the whole time. The vibe is energetic, friendly and welcoming. The bar was decorated lavishly for Christmas and felt so warm and spirited. The live music was just lovely.

The Temple Bar itself was a fun place to have lunch. The food was good, the vibe was fun, music(ian) was good and all around fun. The area around is all pedestrian with lots of shops and other places to eat.
