Temple Bar Area, Dublin: 99 reviews and 117 photos
The night before we were taking the train to the Electric Picnic Festival in Stradbally, Petra and I had a wander round the very touristy but great fun Temple Bar area. We spent ages looking for somewhere we both fancied eating, and there are literally hundreds of places to choose from, eventually settling for a disco diner type place where I had fish and chips and she had a burger.
Afterwards we just wandered up and down in the warm evening, watching all the other tourists and spotting other possible festival goers! We had coffee and cake in a really nice little coffee and cake place that I can't remember the name of but was opposite the Irish Film Institute where, in the upper rooms a small group of wouldbe acTORs were having elocution/voice projection lessons.. their elaborate gesticulations looked very amusing with no sound.
Later, by an outdoor seating area, we came across the Garda dealing with a stabbed Jamaican street performer incident - it had drawn crowds far larger than the poor guy could ever have hoped for with his act. Hope he was ok.
Dress Code: Anything.
