Night like hot spot

This is packed with pubs and tourists. But it's still good fun, and people are so friendly! Hotels are very expensive. You may want to stay clear.

Live music, friendly staff, easy to find, plenty of choice, little more expensive that pubs outside this area but definitely worth a visit, gift shops also available.

A completely relaxed atmosphere, a comprehensive range of drinks and decent restaurants make Temple Bar an essential visit while in Dublin. The location is so central that one can just move across lanes to find more bars and restaurants.

If you go to Dublin you must have to visit the Temple Bar area. The atmosphere is great with lots of live music. Love it. To actually go inside THE Temple Bar you must bring a full wallet cause it is very expensive (€8 for a pint of Guinness)

The location was perfect as we were in the middle of the bars however outside of our accommodation were people smoking drugs everyday which made us feel slightly unsafe. There is a good bus service running around dublin and temple bar and lots of... More

Fun place to see with all the hype. The whole Temple Bar area is worth visiting and enjoying some Irish beers!

Templebar has some interesting restaurants but most pubs are very fake and rip off customers. For a more authentic expierience of Dublin head to nearby Baggot street or Camden street. Much better pubs

This is the hot spot of Dublin, there are hordes of tourists in this area though, which is a bit disappointing when wanting a taste of Irish culture. But it's home to many bars, pubs and restaurants, which are all hit or miss, just depends on what scene they are trying to attract. It can get a little crowded so... More
