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!!!

A fantastic location the staff really nice and check in quick and easy. we had a smoking room which was comfortable as we were able to enjoy a glass of wine and a cigarette in comfort. tv and telephone didnt work.but not too bothered. nice big bathroom and a comfortable sleep. Would definitely stay here again.

Temple bar is fun to walk through but it's very expensive to have a drink at any bar. When we were there a Mexican band was playing which was nice too see everyone dancing. You can also have some homeless people asking for a cigarette or money when you're having a drink.

We stayed in the temple bar area and it was really interesting and quite cool - loved it. We didn't have as long as we would have liked but maybe next time. Cool street singing, comedy clubs and bars. Would definitely recommend a visit or stay.

I understand that it is 'the area' in Dublin for bars, pubs and restaurants, but I may be getting too old to see hundreds of inebriated teenagers/20-something's all in one place and acting silly. It's worth walking by during your tour of the city, but to me it is overhyped and not really catering to me as an individual. I... More

This was my first visit to Dublin and I just happened to visit the Temple Bar area. What a great time I had in the Temple Bar. The people were really friendly and when they learned we were from America, they were even friendlier, sending drinks our way. Loved the vibe of the bar and the area. This is an... More
