The best places to see in Dublin

Dublin's Temple Bar is an enigma! Set up originally as a cultural quarter in an effort to regenerate a run down part of town, it now is a mish mash of culture, cobbled streets, stag/ hen partys, beautiful buildings and (some) terrible pubs. Its definitely worth a visit and...
