We’ve got a three-day weekend in the UK, and I wasn’t about to sit around at home doing the same old weekend routine. So I hopped on a Friday night flight to Dublin in search of adventure!
I got in fairly late, so I didn’t see much of the city (that’ll have to wait until tomorrow). But I did discover that the Temple Bar neighborhood where I’m staying is absolutely hopping. Roughly 98% of the establishments are bars or clubs, and they’re all merrily blasting live music and packed to the gills with revelers. I honestly can’t think of another city I’ve been in with such an energy (certain blocks in the West Village in New York may come close).
