We went here for food and drinks after a rather long day shopping in Dublin. We were looking enough to get a table, and decided not just to have a drink or five, but to get ourselves a meal there at Temple. The bar didnt disappoint us. The food is good, and just after we sat down, the local music... More

Visited The Temple Bar multiple times during our two-day trip. The atmosphere is exactly what you would expect from an old Irish Tavern. The place is quite large with two bars for service, and several rooms for seating as well as live music. According to my wife, the Oysters are fantastic!

The atmosphere in this pub is like nothing ive ever seen! Live singers and everyones so happy - maybe its the Guinness, maybe its the people, maybe its the music maybe its just Dublin! A definite must visit for some authentic Irish Craic - a pints not cheap though!

Having been to my fair share of pubs in my time I was happily sup prised by this venue... Although it is very touristy and the drink prices seem to get higher and higher as the evening goes on and then you have to start selling body parts or consider prostitution to be able to pay for a drink it...

What an amazing old pub! We'd heard of it from many friends and our expectations were high, but we weren't disappointed. The place is a hopping establishment - a fun-filled, upbeat Irish pub where the music is exactly what you want to hear when you visit an Irish pub and the food and drink is what you hope to get....

Had a great night in here listening to some great bands with perfect atmosphere ... Only issue I can bring is the over priced drinks but our time in there was perfect so didn't mind paying the prices!!

Nice stop for a beer and lively meetings, felt warm with many variations inside. A surprise was the open air Indoor garden.

I have visited this pub numerous times, for one pint on each occasion. The reason being: the price. I paid between 7-8 euros a pint!! Everything there is overpriced, from the pub crisps to bottles of water. I don't know how they can justify these prices. I spoke to a few american tourists who were disappointed because of this.
