Packed - even on a Tuesday!

Had an evening here and with a packed house, live music and great ambience, it is well worth its reputation. Head here if in Dublin

I had looked forward to seeing Temple Bar being that Temple Bar district is named after it. However, while I was able to grab a pint and pay immediately, I was not able to acquire supper. I had planned on grabbing supper there as well, yet I wasn't even approached by staff in the 45 minutes I spent there. Instead,... More

I have been to Dublin twice and on both occasions the Temple Bar is always wall to wall people with standing room only. I could hear a live band was playing but I would have had to slither between too many people to see them or order a drink. Now keep in mind I'm in my early 40's, alone, a... More

Temple Bar is a parody of Dublin culture and should , mostly , be avoided .Its basically a long street running parallel to Dame street .The good part is near Christ Church where there are some good coffee shops , a really good artist collective shop and generally a nice vibe .The remaining is a blot on the Dublin landscape...

Best irish coffee on our trip to Dublin. Yes the drinks are a little pricey but then we'd expected that!!!! The live music was fabulous and the whole bar filled with charm. Loved it.

The area is full of drunks and fights. Avoid unless your a lager lout. There are some great bars and venues but not for the faint hearted. Us dubliners tend to avoid the place like a plague.

Lively, touristy place where the beer taps are always flowing. Great people watching, large selection of pubs and restaurants to choose from, as well as some cool shops. If you are wandering around in Dublin for any amount of time, you'll end up there anyway.
