Dublin’s Temple Bar is a well-known nightlife hot spot, but there is much more to this district than overpacked pubs.

After Irish Independence, a few men sat down and thought about what they would do with Dublin. “How could we make such a British Imperial city the new Irish capital?”, they thought. We can't possibly tear down all the British parts, can we? If we did that there'd be nothing left but the pubs...
Since then, Dublin has become a symbol of reconciling Ireland's British past with its Irish future. British Trinity College with its Protestant legacy has produced Oscar Wilde and Jonathan Swift, while Dublin's pubs have produced writers from the Irish tradition, such as Patrick Kavanagh and Brendan Behan. This tour is therefore a tribute to Dublin's dual personality, and the pub door will be the boundary between the two worlds.
Besides the history lessons, you'll learn about beer, the Irish pub, as well as partake in an activity that the Irish are renowned for – conversation.
