This place is the worst place you can visit. It is full of bars and restaurant which are pure tourist traps. Things are specially geared towards the unwary tourist. It is not all authentic. It is what one would call put on for the visitors. I walk through it and I have never stopped to have a drink or food.... More

It has a reputation of being THE place for the bar scene, but even if the bar scene isn’t your thing, the Temple Bar is worth a stroll. By day, the street is bustling yet quaint. Don’t miss it.

This was pretty cool to visit. There is a street with multiple pubs and a lot of street performers. A lot of the pubs have live entertainment also. I'm not the party type but it was fun to have a few beers and people watch.

It seems the place everyone has to visit. It wasn't that busy during our daylight visit. Had to have an Irish coffee here and it was great. Then I had to have some Guinness as well, well why not. It's worth a visit.

Could not get in as it was always packed, but one can drink outside of the pub area., Did not get to see the entertainment becaurse of this unfortunately. A very busy area but ver interesting losts of eateries in the surrounding area and little shops. All good.

This must be the dearest bar I've ever been in. It cost me almost 15 euros for a pint of flat lager and a small glass of wine served by a sullen faced barmaid,the first and last time I'll be in here. I know the Templebar area is expensive,but this place abused the privelige.

Thus is a must see on your trip to Dublin but it is a tourist trap. Make sure you venture out beyond temple bar and see the rest of the city. There is a lot to visit in Dublin.
