Been to Temple Bar many times, love this bar. It has great atmosphere, local musical artists playing live, along with some great Irish beers. The staff are really friendly, and great service. It's a must place to visit the famous Temple bar. There is also lots of souvenirs (postcards, key rings & magnets of the bar) from the store next... More

An area full of "traditional" Irish bars that play to the tourists especially the Americans who love the Irish music put on for them. There is a great selection of bars and restaurants in this area including The Temple Bar and The Hard Rock Cafe. At weekends it's full of tourists and stag/hen parties and the locals charge accordingly. The... More

Temple bar is a place you can't miss, sure it's touristy but aren't you a tourist. Great place for pubs with music. We liked that the music started early in the day so you enjoy a pint and music without waiting for 9 or so. Many of the Pubs have people singing and dancing all day and night long. Sure... More

I like to steer clear of Temple Bar when in Dublin. Went to meet a friend in a pub he manages there but only for that I wouldn't have gone near the place. THIS IS NOT THE REAL IRELAND!!! Get out of Templebar and go to a proper Dublin pub like the International (which isn't far away).

We were in Dublin for two hours when we came here and took our first Guiness and whiskey. The place has a cool atmosphere, traditional look and feel. There was Irish music playing in the background and the beer was fantastic, not even near to any beer i drank back at home. It is really a must to any Dublin... More

I would definitely recommend visiting the area of temple bar to explore but not to drink and eat here. They over charge and ask for nearly thirteen euro for a single vodka and lemonade and the later into the night it gets the more they put the prices up. I would travel out of temple bar if you want to... More

It's a tourist trap and kitschy. But I like it. I love the bustle and the atmosphere. We Irish tend to yawn at Irish emigration music and blarney etc. The pubs are busy, full of music and the crowds are good humoured. Everyone's having a good time. What's wrong with that. You'll spend a few bob more than you would... More
