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.

We visited the place multiple times, mainly in daytime. At night lots of drunk people, but there was a sense of security. At saturday morning it was very good. Local bands were playing music and it was the perfect place to have a stroll and find somewhere to eat

Yes, it's packed with tourists and street performers but the area is very lively and compact. It's a great location to start your pub crawling evening. Went to the Temple Bar twice during our stay just for the music.

The Temple Bar area is a tourist area in Dublin mainly for young people in my opinion. Lots of Europeans. Not my favorite place to go in Dublin for sure.

I loved the vibrant, lively atmosphere of Temple Bar. When we got there, there were so many people and activities. It was bubbly and lively; and us being from NYC, we loved it because it reminded us of the Village in NYC. There were so many interesting restaurants and it was difficult to pick one. Many had their menus on... More

Great band tonight-- the Crackling Jacks-- great sandwiches--great company, strangers who invited us to share their table. This place has a super vibe and I'd recommend it to anyone. People have said it's "touristy". As a tourist all I can say is fun, fun, fun!
