Great place, a tad pricey though.

Great place, lots of space, although I can see it still becoming very full and hard to move around in when full. Nice atmosphere though, but then I find most Irish bars are a lot... read more

Very very popular place to drink and eat. We absolutely loved this place. The sandwiches were delightful and the atmosphere was great. It's always packed but In the Temple Bar area this is what you can expect. It's shocking how quickly your served! Would definitely recommend a visit. The live music really makes you feel at home and believe me... More

The Temple Bar is OK. It's great to go and check out and do the tourist thing but other than that, not a place I wanted to stay for too long. I stayed long enough for a pint of Guinness then headed off to visit the other awesome bars in Dublin. It was extremely busy and we were lucky to... More

Given the number of people taking photos of the outside this is clearly a well sought after tourist spot. The real winner are those who venture inside, grab a Guinness and enjoy the atmosphere and live music. Oh and the oysters - massive.

Great place, lots of space, although I can see it still becoming very full and hard to move around in when full. Nice atmosphere though, but then I find most Irish bars are a lot nicer than British ones! As well known as it is, I do feel they are taking advantage of it by being more expensive than most...

We spent an hour or so huddled into a little snug at the end of the bar. Great pub with a fantastic atmosphere and the best (two) old fashioned I have ever had made by a lovely and friendly waitress (thank you for the free shot of the full Irish!) See you in February!!!

A great place to spend an hour or so with a cold Guinness. Very busy but a big enough place not to feel swamped. Good music. Excellent bar staff. Will go again.

What can you say about Temple Bar other than it's the bar to go to when in Dublin! Even though most who visit this Dublin treasure aren't locals, it is an Irish staple and an iconic tourist stop. There's plenty of Irish Whiskey and the bartenders do pour a good pint of Guinness however, trying to push your way through... More

Great atmosphere even in a Sunday night, few tourists in here which wasn't too bad. The guitarist was taking requests and it really added a good vibe to the place. Even in a Sunday night this the bar was packed so standing space only but nonetheless it was still good fun.
