The Temple Bar area is home to several important cultural institutions such as the Irish Photography Centre, the Irish Film Institute, and the New Theatre.

The Temple Bar area features loads of pubs, eateries, shops and sightseeing attractions arranged in a compact zone that’s easily traveled on foot. So while the accommodations in this area score lots of points on convenience, they may not be great for travelers keen on having some peace and quiet during their stay. This guestroom for two is located in a loft-style apartment just outside the Temple Bar area. Adorned with some cool pop art pieces, the apartment is great for people-watching through its big windows. Wireless internet and cable TV are available. The host provides simple breakfast like cereals and tea/coffee.
Double Room in Heart of the City
Just like the Thames River that divides London into two geographical regions, the Liffey River does the same to Dublin. Once there was a cultural division on either side of the river (working class on the north side, and upper-middle class on the south side), but modern redevelopment has removed such a divide. This guestroom for one, with a wonderfully eclectic decor, is on the opposite bank to the Temple Bar area, but just a mere walking distance away. The host has prepared a Dublin guide with a list of places to eat, drink and socialize. You are also welcomed to play his guitar and Xbox!
City Sanctuary near Temple Bar
Who would have thought that the most iconic building in Dublin is….a post office? Yes, the General Post Office is the last of the great Georgian public buildings erected in the capital, and it majestically overlooks O'Connell Street, the city’s main thoroughfare. The road starts on the east end of the Temple Bar area, past the O'Connell Bridge into the north bank of the Liffey River, and is lined with monuments and statues of various Irish political leaders. This cozy guestroom for one, with wireless internet and washing machine, is a good option if you want to explore that part of town, being situated close to the river and its many bridges. It’s great for solo and business travelers.
In the cities heart Temple Bar
The Temple Bar area is part of the “Old City” of Dublin, which has been in existence since the 17th century. It is flanked by two age-old institutions: the Christ Church Cathedral, the oldest building in Dublin, and the Trinity College, Ireland’s most prestigious university. This homely guestroom for two is located near the cathedral, making it a great base to start exploring the historic aspects of the city. If you get to meet the hosts, they are only too willing to help you plan your sightseeing itineraries around the city. The apartment is situated in the Temple Bar area, and traditional Irish pubs are right on its doorsteps, as is a designer market on Saturdays selling fashion accessories.
Bright Room in the Centre of TownDublin, Ireland
This top-floor apartment for two is right opposite the City Hall on the main street that borders the Temple Bar area. A few bus services ply the street, and you can use them to reach sightseeing spots south of the area such as St. Stephen’s Green, St. Patrick’s Cathedral and the National Gallery of Ireland. The apartment is plainly decorated but has all the necessary amenities for a comfortable stay. And of course, great cafes and eateries can be found right on the ground floor.

Even amid the crowded Temple Bar area, there are oases of calm such as the garden outside this fine apartment for up to four guests. They make it easier to tolerate the boisterous crowd who frequent the pubs in the area during weekends. The rooms are tastefully lit with warm lights and are fitted with an Eco heating system during the colder months. Such comforts allow you to recharge and rejuvenate adequately so that you can go on more exploration tours the next day.

For many travelers, the best spot in Dublin for an Instagram-worthy selfie must be in the middle of a bridge across the Liffey River. There are two pedestrian bridges that connect the Temple Bar area to the north bank, the Ha'Penny Bridge and the Millennium Bridge. The Ha'Penny Bridge is by far the prettier one, but you’ll have to share it with plenty of other tourists. This no-frills double guestroom in the Temple Bar area is not far from the bridges, and you might even find good photo opportunities along the cobbled walking streets of the area.
