comment where is considered Dublin's (Ireland) city center, and most ideal location for nightlife / pubs?
@KarlCassar It's an unrelated (or at least very loosely related) meaning of the word bar: bar as in a city gate. It may be because such gates barred the way, but that may be just a divagation of mine. The word isn't used in this sense in modern English but remains in place names here and there in the British Isles. Temple Bar would have been a city gate, and then by extension the neighborhood near that city gate, and now the city has grown and the gate is forgotten but the name lives on.

For transportation, a taxi is barely more expensive than public transport when there are multiple passengers. I don't know what the child seat situation is though. There are also airport buses going downtown, easier than navigating the metro with luggage and children.
