There are really two Temple Bars, depending on when you visit. During the day, Temple Bar is an artsy, cultured district full of trendy shops and modern art galleries, such as the excellent Temple Bar Gallery. But such refinement gives way to an altogether more raucous atmosphere at night, when things can get pretty lively. With its myriad selection of pubs, bars, and hip clubs, this is definitely where it’s at in Dublin after dark.
