Its a bar. Its in Ireland. Its touristy. But - you have to go because its just what you do when in Dublin. The staff were nice and there was live music when we were there during the middle of the day on a Tuesday. It was quiet during our visit but I'm sure it gets quite full and loud... More

Don't go if you expect to find a seat, especially at night. We squeezed in and got pretty close to live band. Amazing duo on stage. Loved them so much we bought their CD. Couldn't get a drink though cause we couldn't get near bar. But it was worth it to get inside the Temple Bar.

Great place to go and fill up some hours after a golf trip to the Emerald Isle! You've never seen so many bottles behind the bartender, go sober and leave otherwise!! FuN FUN FUN!

People of all ages will enjoy the bustling Temple Bar area. There is a plethora of great restaurants and for those of a majority age the opportunity to select some of the best watering holes in Dublin for a libation or two.

It is a very touristic place, full of live action and pubs that in the evening they play live music... Amazing. There are also a lot of restaurants that you might eat, but you must stop in some of the old pub for a beer and a sang.

Busy and brilliant. Well worth a visit. History and modern life (and bars!) all rolled into one. Went there eight years ago now, but I'll never forget it.

Pretty much just a constant street of pubs. Worth a short visit to one or two but there are a fair amount of shifty characters who you need to keep an eye on. There seem to be a good few alternative, classier watering holes elsewhere in Dublin but Temple Bar is worth a short visit.

On a Friday night, there was live music! They were great, they mixed traditional music with well known songs. I went to two pubs in the area and the price for a pint of beer was the same. Beware, there are a lot of people!!!
