Temple Bar is a historic area in Dublin city, as well as a world-famous pub. The combination of artsy businesses and nightlife hotspots means that Temple Bar transforms during the course of the day: mornings are quiet, afternoons start slow, and by the evening the area fills up with the dining crowd and tourists. Temple Bar has maintained its medieval street exterior with narrow cobbled streets over the years it has been around. It is famous for its lively nightlife and attracts a number of tourists with its large variety of bars, clubs and restaurants.
