Temple Bar Guide

Temple Bar is a lively fun packed area right in the centre of Dublin on the south side of the river Liffey. It has the greatest concentration of pubs, restaurants, cafes & night-clubs. During the day it is busy with visitors browsing the shops and soaking up the atmosphere.

The pedestrianized streets are alive with street sellers & buskers. At night, the noise levels increase dramatically as the place heaves with revellers. Not surprisingly, it is the area that everyone wants to stay in and there are a good number of hotels.

Hotels in Temple Bar tend to be expensive it is extremely difficult to get availability, particularly on Friday & Saturday nights. If you are on a tight budget, the Bridge House may be worth looking at. It is a family run guesthouse on Parliament Street in the middle of Temple Bar. It's clean, comfortable, friendly & not too expensive.

For somewhere with style, The Morgan Hotel may be for you. It is very modern boutique style hotel with beautiful rooms and suites. In addition to all usual things you expect in a hotel, the rooms all have CD Players & Modem Points. At Euro 150.00 to Euro 205.00 for a Double / Twin, it is a little expensive, but worth the money when you take into account the location & room quality.

For that particularly special occasion you may consider the Clarence Hotel. Owned by Bono & the Boys in U2, it is the premier luxury hotel in Temple Bar and very popular with visiting celebrities. The atmosphere and service in their Octogan Bar is top class and the restaurant is excellent. I think that the design is too modern & minimalist, but most folks seem to love it. At Euro 245.00 for a standard room per night, I would expect a personal introduction to the owners but judging from the fact that it is fully booked most of the time, there are obviously a lot of people on higher budgets than me!

The Paramount Hotel is also located in the temple Bar district. It is one of Dublin's newest hotels and decorated in a 1930's style. Very lively atmosphere with a late bar 7 nights a week.Weekend Rates Euro Twin/Double Euro 60.00 per person per night
