This is a must see because it's a focal/local point of any trip to Dublin. It's also tour driven, and international haven of people and location that you need to see at a least 2-3 bars and experience this culture. Fun to say the least, people watching 101%, and great city ales/beers. It's easy to walk thru the area and... More

. . .but, in my 50's it's got a frat house feel to it - for those of you from the NY metro area, think Hoboken on a Friday night. For those of you young or young at heart, go toss back several pints and have a great time!

The whole Temple Bar area is filled with activity. The streets are crowded with visitors and street musicians. The cafes are bustling. We had a great time just walking through the streets.

Lots of reviews giving off about price! It's normal to go on hols and spend a bit more esp if you're drinking in a big tourist spot. My bf and I had a great night pub crawling around here and yes I nearly died when our last round of two double vods and mixers cost 33euro but it was a... More

The title says it all really - this place is over priced and not worth going to. Keep away and spend your money somewhere else.

Extremely touristy but music is good. Food is good, but service is crazy and prices are high. Bands were a lot of fun with sing alongs.

This is definitely an expensive touristy bar, BUT it is also really fun and worth going when there is live music. Everyone sings along and you can meet travelers from across the globe. I can't imagine going in the day time, but every night is a blast. Walking in the Temple bar area, you just follow the music and you... More

We went here knowing that it would be expensive and was only going to stay for one or two drinks before moving on. as soon as we finished the second drink some local live music appeared on stage, after that we hat food and stayed for 5 more hours just enjoying the local atmosphere. best night out in ages

We spent a couple evenings walking around Temple bar and drinking some Guinness and some Jamison. Reminded me of hanging out in the French Quarter in New Orleans!! If you go make sure you take a picture with the real live leprechaun, I didn't and I spent the rest of the trip sorry for it!!
