"5 euro for a pint" Temple Bar Area Tip by ccmoira

Temple Bar Area, Dublin: 100 reviews and 121 photos

One Irish friend of mine, who I met at the hostel, was complaining to me about the prices in the Temple Bar area of Dublin. He said that anything over 3.50 was outrageous (for a pint of Guinness). I have to agree, though for me that's an outstandingly good price. Last time I was in the States I paid about 5 euro for a pint of Guinness (and, of course, it wasn't even that good).
The Temple Bar section of town is where it's all "happening" though. Lots of students, though there are bars that cater to a slightly older crowd. There are also some touristy places (i.e. traps).
I avoided it for the most part so I don't really have any recommendations.

Dress Code: Whatever - as usual it depends on who you want to impress and how much.
