Temple Bar is one of Dublin's most popular destinations for drinking and music. It is very lively in the evenings but beware - the prices can be high! Three pubs to check out are:
1. The Temple Bar - Very famous, can be crowded but good for music.
2. The Brazen Head - Oldest pub in Dublin, dates all the way back to 1198, mentioned by James Joyce in Ulysses.
3. The Workman's Club - More of a Hipster hangout. Good for a night out.
Also located in Temple Bar are the Irish Film Institue, the Project Arts Centre, and DESIGNyard. All are well worth a visit.
