"Temple Bar, Why we hate it." Temple Bar Tip by Buckz

Temple Bar, Dublin: 18 reviews and 14 photos

Favorite thing: Booze Brawls Beggars Binges, Temple Bar makes Prohibition look like a good idea. Walk through Temple Bar at night and you will see every walk of life, and none of them can walk. Falling drunk and stupid from fake "Oirish" pubs blasting out 3rd rate rubbish music, it doesn't get any worse. A few young pubs add a selection of dangerously out of control kids to the mix. Each ATM has its resident beggar to hassle you.
The few decent restaurants are so well hidden you won't find them.
Every Booze weeekend that comes to Ireland comes to Temple Bar, Meander through streets avoiding drunks and raucous groups all shouting at each other, avoid the piles of rubbish and half eaten (or half digested ) fast food.
The tourists who "see" temple Bar are usually so drunk they can't see straight.
If you can see straight of think straight, see straight through Temple Bar.

Just avoid Temple Bar.
