Ireland is one of the most touristic countries in the world, and at the heart of this tourism machine lies Temple Bar. This area of Dublin is famous for it’s pubs and and music, however this area is best avoided for drinking.
The average cost for a pint of beer in Ireland is around four Euro, at Temple Bar it can be twice that. And let’s be honest, nobody ever has just one drink.
But let’s say you aren’t here to drink, you just want to listen to some music in a traditional pub. And while you will find music and a traditional pub theme there will be too many drunk people crowded into a small area to enjoy it.
Temple Bar is where tourists come to Dublin to party, even walking farther away from the city centre will result in reduced prices, better atmosphere, and a much more enjoyable time.
