Great music, but crowded!!!

We stopped on a Saturday and couldn't even breathe, let alone hear the music, so we returned mid week and it was much better. Expensive, but the music was great, and hey, you're... read more

I've been there with a friend before going to Quays and after being mistreated there. Very nice staff and environment. Thank you for providing us a nice time in our trip!

We went here for a lunch, and it is definitely a cool place, and is one of the most iconic pubs in Dublin. That being said, the food was over-priced and not especially good. If I was going back I'd probably just go for a drink. Don't waste your money on anything else. Souvenir shop next door is great, by... More

Had a great time visiting Temple Bar. It was the first place on our stop and really puts you in a good mood. The bar is much bigger than it looks from the outside and is busy day and night however we were served quickly at one of the many bars and had our first ever pint on Guinness! Staff... More

Thought that a visit to the Temple Bar in Dublin would be appropriate. It was packed as testimony to its popularity and the overworked waiters struggled to keep up. The Guinness was good and food was typical good pub grub.

This was another place that was very busy and always is. Good fun and music and great chat with lots of people. The tourists loved this place and everyone was loving the Irish songs and singing along. Expensive as you would expect but you know what you get when your in Temple Bar.

For the most famous pub in Dublin you would expect it to be busy but was even more so than I anticipated. The live music was good but no different to anywhere else in Dublin and the prices of the drinks were expensive but then so is Dublin as a whole and I found the prices to be in line... More
