Contrary to what its name suggests, Temple Bar in Dublin is a riverside neighborhood of establishments that serve a different kind of “spirit.” These bars blend antiquity, live music and copious libations to ensure that guests let loose and forget their worries.
For clients looking for unique nightlife, Dublin has it all: Boisterous pubs bursting with dancing partygoers, taverns for live Gaelic music, laid-back whiskey bars and LGBTQ-friendly pub theaters welcome visitors of all stripes.
Personally, I stepped into two different Irish pubs in Temple Bar. One allowed me to sit back and enjoy a dinner of fish and chips with a pint of Guinness, and the other pitched me and my friends into a crowd of sufficiently jovial patrons singing along with abandon to the live band’s cover of Coldplay’s “Viva la Vida.”
I was pleasantly surprised that such diametrically contrasting experiences could be had within such close proximity, but I attribute that to the great diversity of nightlife to be enjoyed in the Irish capital.
At the latter pub, I also discovered Irish coffee — a hot cocktail of coffee, Irish whiskey, sugar and cream. Like the concoction, Irish nightlife is larger than life and leaves you wanting more.
