Temple Bar is very "touristy". But for me, that wasn't a problem. It is a very nice neighbourhood with adorable houses and narrow streets. It is a lively place; people everywhere, always moving. There is a pub on every corner, so a Guinness (or your drink of choice) is never far away. You can find live music here, restaurants, shops...... More

My only problem was the price of the beer that was really expensive. Instead of that everything was amazing, funny people, great atmosphere, excellent music

Very nice neighborhood with many, many pubs, restaurants and bar, most of them with live music. Be aware that at weekends ti is very crowded and the food service ends at 22:00 (most of places).

A great area and a great bar. A fun mix of tourists and locals and good bands. A little touristy but not so much as to be disappointing. Go and enjoy yourself. Maybe even buy a tshirt. It will look fine back home.

But it is probably the same like with... More

We had a fantastic time at the Temple Bar. What fun, great music, great Guiness and loved meeting new people. A place we will frequent when back in Dublin.
