The most famous area to go for garitos is Temple bar. It is true that here you will not miss the good atmosphere, the pint of beer and live music - in bars like Hairy Lemon, The Temple Bar, The Porter House or Fitzsimmons -, but there are other places near the center that have much more to offer and are less touristy.

The following pubs are very good options in the city center:

  • The Hogan's: One of my favorites for the nights of talks and confidences, but very lively at the same time.
  • Whelan's: there is no better pub in the center of Dublin to listen to rock bands and alternative music at the price of laughter. A pub luxury.
  • 4 Give me Lane:Tastefully decorated pub, good clientele and something hidden.
  • The George: he Ireland's most famous gay friendly pub. A lot of color and always with funny numbers.
  • The Church: A church converted into a pub. It is spectacular and in it you can both eat something or have a coffee in the middle of the afternoon, like dancing until dawn in a crypt that acts as a disco.

  • Temple Bar Inn: If you are looking to be in the heart of the march, this is your hotel.
  • Schoolhouse hotel: Located in the quiet Dublin 4, near Merrion Square and the Grand Canal, it is an idyllic place and you can walk to all the downtown attractions. In addition, it has a great bar in which I have spent great nights of conversations.
