Packed and loud, mostly tourists. Great live music and decent drink prices despite other reviews. It's worth walking around the Temple Bar district and the people watching is world class. Walking distance from Trinity College and the Liffey River.

Due to the sheer amount of people trying to get in and out of here I wouldn't frequent this place, but it's definitely worth a visit any night of the week for the atmosphere and live music.

While in Dublin we first thought Temple Bar was a single bar. Once we walked down there we discovered it was a district within the city that is flooded with great pubs and eateries. This pub set the mark high and offered great music, a really fun crowd and even some good food and drink. It really offers the sense... More

The most famous bar in Temple Bar. You should go just for this reason. The live music is good (like many other places in Dublin), the atmosphere is good (like many other places in Dublin), the door staff are very friendly (like many other places in Dublin) and the service is efficient and friendly (again, like many other places in...

Great little pub, always very busy. Live music was fantastic and had everyone going. Drinks are super expensive and the prices go up at night. Worth it for one for the amazing atmosphere.

Can't stay in Temple Bar without visiting here. It's a bit rough round the edges but that's what I like.the beer is great. Will be back again.

Come during the week and take a look around, and you'll find it's a pretty interesting place. The food is pretty good as well. Come the weekend the place is jam-packed and there are much better places outside of the tourist trap area.

We walked past twice before deciding to pop in for a Guinness. This has to be a top list "must do" the place is amazing, room after room and a bar at both ends. No waiting to be served and live music from 13.00 weekdays. We enjoyed it so much we went back..... If you want a real Dublin craic... More

It goes without saying, before even clambering in through the doors, that The Temple Bar is a tourist trap. If you come here expecting anything else, you'll be sorely disappointed. If you come here expecting a lively, energetic, welcoming and perhaps a little stereotypical Irish experience then it's everything you could want. With people actually waiting in vain outside for...
