Temple Bar is a lively pub full of good music and good beer. However, watch out how much you consume because the prices are definitely meant for tourists.

Everyone we met here was so friendly. We visited the day England played the Republic of Ireland at football, even though we were wearing England football tops, people were shaking our hands and buying us drinks.

Temple Bar is a great place to take a person who's never been to Dublin before. It's a great way to show the great cultural and traditional Irish life. The pubs have traditional Irish live music. Great Irish foods, example Irish strew great Guinness.

Nobody could ever say they've seen Dublin without a visit to the Temple Bar area. Even better is a meal there; the experience is truly unbeatable.

Relatively Quiet Pub Scene, maybe I just went on a bad night. Lots of live Irish music and Guinness. Decent shopping options

This pub has so many rooms in it you could easily get lost. Friendly helpful staff, good food, great selection of drinks and an interesting atmosphere. For smokers which we are not there are open roof rooms so you are not stuck going to the backyard.
