The temple bar area is great to visit. There were a few bands playing and the buildings were beautiful. A great place to meet people from all over the world and have a drink.

Temple bar is a very fun, and electric part of Dublin. Fun bars and many good restaurants to be found. One word of caution....be careful what you wear. I had on a peach sweater - not orange but close enough for some of those Irishman to want to give me a cussing or knuckle sandwich. I had no idea why... More

Pick a night, any night, it matters not. Pick a corner in the Temple Bar sq 1/2 mile area, any corner - you'll find excitement, laughter, tons of people making bar hops, music streaming out from the countless pub's, street performers, musicians waiting to be discovered, little tourist chatky shops, eateries, and on and on. We visited at least 3... More

I love the Temple bar area because there are so many pubs with excellent food and music starting as early as 3:00 in the afternoon. There's also street musicians and always a vibrant atmosphere.

Very expensive area, drinks go up as it gets later at night. Plenty of better places to go for food or drinks that are more reasonably priced. Also the Irish experiences that they promote only run in summer.

Good atmosphere, great bar service. worth a visit. Live entertainment. If you want a decent drink with some traditional live Irish entertainment you will not go far wrong with this place. Can get a little busy but you can have a good crack.

Hi Just returned from a weekend trip to Dublin and no trip would be complete without a visit to The temple Bar in Temple Bar. As previous visitors have said its lively, friendly and a great atmosphere but more expensive than other pubs but worth a visit. My only complaint would be that it advertises on the website Live Irish... More

Temple bar is a good place to be if you like overcrowded, expensive pubs with often over the top country style furniture. Many pubs outside of temple bar have good life music as well as cheaper drinks so if you are in an accommodation that is not close to the city centre and you want to go on a night... More
