A lot going on in this area - pretty interesting shops and TONS of bars and clubs. It's definitely a good place to go if you want activity all day round, with the pubs having live music from the late afternoons and being filled up with young people drinking from the afternoon onwards. It is extremely touristy and the prices... More

No need to eat or drink in Temple Bar, but this touristy section of Dublin is fun for a people-watching stroll in the early evening before the crowds hit.

Good buzz, very expensive and not authentic in the least but good fun none the less. Worth a visit but at e6.80 for a pint of rubbish Bulmers cider (can't drink beer due to gluten intolerance) be prepared to spend a lot on a few drinks. It is tacky, over priced, run down, false and too crowded but I'd give... More

The place trades on the supposed tourist impression of Ireland. Trust me this is NOTHING like the REAL Ireland, and it's wonderful people. Only a small handful of bars in this area are worth a visit. Having said that, it just has to be done!

Any tourists visiting Templebar - avoid this place like the plague. It is far removed from a real taste of Ireland. You will simply feel ripped off. Rowdy youths and vomit everywhere at night. The place should be levelled & the greedy publicans smoked out of the place. Nothing but a tourist trap.

So many people and we still had a grand time. Felt safe because there were many families there and plenty of security. Food was very good, the wait time was not so good but we expected that.

If I am being fair there are a few gems in the rough. Hippertys for example and the porterhouse offer good food and latterly good drink, but they are let down by a plethora of poor and frankly unscrupulous establishments. Most pubs in the area will charge you a fortune for some artificial sense of Irishness. Sadly too many tourists... More

Avoid this place, it is an absolute rip-off. How can they justify charging EUR 7.45 for a pint of beer??? Utter greed and an insult to tourists. Disgraceful.
