We are going to be staying in the Temple Bar area over New Year's with our 3 children and two of their friends between 17-22 years old. My problem is that we want to give them freedom but we have read in some travel books that Dublin can have some trouble late at night. How safe is it? What are some inexpensive places to eat (there will be 7 of us $$$ Ouch!) What sightseeing things will be open? Thanks, much!
(I asked this question in another thread, but received no response. Sorry for the repeat.)
