temple bar is generally flooded with tourists and if it isnt hard enough to walk on those cobble stones, then theres the added slow tourist walkers that cluster in big groups so you cant get past, i usually avoid it. i did love eamon dorans here but thats gone now so now i go to the temple bar music centre on the rare occasion. there is no doubt you will see stags/hens and lots of drunk lost people wandering around into the early hours....

An atmosphere of sorts here with crowds milling about at night--but alcohol is the predominant theme here,and gets a 'rough' feel, notwithstanding that the area has some good restaurants , galleries and specialist shops-a terrible shame.Like a magnet for badly-behaved stag and hen parties, and not a great ad for 'representing' Ireland. Mc Donalds will be opening up here too--------will undoubtedly do very well for all the wrong reasons----it is the last thing |Temple Bar needs in terms of the... Read more...

Myself and a friend took a wander through Temple Bar, mainly to see what all the fuss was about. I still do not know what all the fuss was about. I did not enjoy this experience one bit. I found the area dirty and crowded. This was a Saturday and the place seemed to be taken over with markets and stalls selling different wares. It is not something I would do and somewhere I would go again, never. Not nice at all.... Read more...

this is just one of the tourist hot spots in dublin which can be off putting to many native dubliners, although i can understand why as it can be a bit overwhelming with the hen and stags running around by times. that said, it is much underappreciated in that it is a place families can enjoy cheaply and it is in a central location making it a useful place to pass a rainy day over the summer holidays....

Hadn’t been to Temple Bar in a while. Loved the place at the beginning but thought it had gone off a bit, got a bad name for being a bit rough. There are a wide variety of pubs with good entertainment, restaurants and accommodation available Well decided to do a pub and food crawl at the weekend and be a bit of a tourist. Was surprised at how brilliant a night we had. Visited various well know tourist haunts and we had great fun. Temple Bar is certainly lively and noisy. Temple Bar... Read more...

The squareness of this square is not to be denied, however it is the usual emptiness of said sqare that causes me some doubts as to its utility. Perhaps the fact that it is the 'cultural quarter' is a clue; perhaps it is providing us with an insight into the ultimate futility and emptiness of existence. It is actually a nice quiet place to sit during the day and gather yourself. Surrounding the big empty square are: the IFI, which is great, the Photographic Museum, the Photographic Gallery,...

I can't believe that this is considered a "Cultural Quarter". Temple Bar Square is a combination of tourists, hens on the prowl, and emo kids that are so cool they skip school and go into town. What do they do in Temple Bar Square? Well, the tourists take pictures... of everything and nothing, the hens shout and sing and look trashy, and the emo kids stand around and admire each others' awful clothing. Temple Bar Square has to be the most useless "Cultural Quarter" I have... Read more...

seriously this is one of the most taken forgranted amenities on offer in Dublin. Unfortunately it has developed a reputation for tourists and stag parties but temple bar has so much more to offer from the IFI to the gallery of photography, the ark theatre for kids, the markets and cinema in the square, its got so much goodies. Everybody should pop into the tourist office and take a pick up some programmes of up and coming events. You would be surprised the smount of free entertainment that is... Read more...
