Heading for Dublin’s Temple Bar After All?
Okay, Temple Bar. It's the big tourist magnet, so we can't leave it out even if many feel that it is way overrated. To be honest, if I had guests who wanted a real Irish pub experience, I'd stay clear of Temple Bar with them. But seeing Dublin would not be complete without a glance at Temple Bar, so everybody heads there anyway.
