A great area, and a great place to stop and have a pint. Friendly bar staff and great music. Well worth a visit if you're in Dublin

One of the 'must do's" on a trip to Dublin. Very noisy, lively and busy part of town. I had a drink at the Temple bar and listened awhile to the musicians, then strolled along the very crowded streets (at night) listening to the buskers and generally enjoying the atmosphere. River also looks beautiful at night with all the reflections

Beautiful park to read a book, walk enjoying the scenery, listen to music, and chat with friends. I spent several afternoons there studying and walking with friends.

One of the best destination in Dublin, a must see street as you will find performers outside playing, and the nightlife is all about live music and drinks :))) dont forget to shop for souvenirs. PS: Watch your stuff especially when it get crowded

The Temple Bar Area is Ok to have a walk through and has some nice shops and cafes and restruants but many of the bars are just waiting to rip you off and grab your hard earned money. Many will provide free entetainment in the way of so called Irish music but a notice on their reciepts will say no... More

Temple Bar is a part of Dublin where lots of pubs are located. This is a very lively area generally full of tourists, street artists and musicians. Do not confuse with a pub that is located in this area and adopted the same name.

As a Dub I remember Temple bar when it was a cool place to hang out. Sadly these days it has become a totally tourist oriented place. Very expensive, Take the time to explore Dublin and the the real place. Avoid Temple Bar at all costs and don't be ripped off.
