The Palace Bar
Welcome to Temple Bar - but not as you know it. Creak beyond the stained-glass doors of this local favorite on Fleet Street and a Victorian world, void of Irish kitsch awaits. Historically, The Palace was the watering hole of Dublin's literati but nowadays it makes it a good spot to nestle down with a pint and The Irish Times crossword. Local barflies are happy to help those struggling with 6 across.
What to order: Try a pint of Smithwicks ale on tap
