As one of the most successful developments in Temple Bar, the Irish Film Institute (IFI) will keep the most discerning culture-vulture entertained for hours. Film buffs will enjoy the two art-house cinemas and fairly comprehensive bookshop. The café/bar/restaurant is worth visiting in its own right if only to marvel at the award-winning architecture, as this light-filled building was constructed from the space between two older houses. The IFI also regularly hosts festival screenings, seminars, and workshops. A fun and relaxing place in which to spend an hour or two.
