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.

We read the reviews here and made it a point to find this place. Not hard to find, either. Lots of people in the streets and I spied the red front of the bar and made a beeline there. The patio, which is open to the sky, had a place for us. My partner smokes, and pretty much everyone on... More

Great atmosphere the heart of Temple Bar but not for the timid or tight fisted. You have to be prepared to push your way through a good natured crowd to get to the bar and then not count the cost of a pint, mindful of the atmosphere and free entertainment.

This is a fun place. Lots of nooks a crannies, lots of bars and stools to perch on but it does get busy so if you want to sit go early. A great place to people watch and try some good Irish Whiskeys, they have lots and the bartenders are friendly and helpful.

My sister, her husband and mine stopped by this pub a couple of months ago, when they were visiting Dublin. We particularly wanted to take in some live Irish music, without staying out late to do so. We were fortunate, at 2.30 on a Sunday afternoon, to find TWO different acts, following each other with just 20 minutes or so... More

I visited this bar a few times while in Dublin. Its has a great atmosphere and is well worth a visit. Try and go when they have some live music on and get into the spirit.

Worth stopping in for a pint, but the bar was very busy and more of a tourist stop more then a local pub.

This place is a quirky little Irish bar in temple bar, which has live music and good atmosphere however on the down side the prices of drinks are extortionate where 2 drinks could set you back 16-18 euro depending on what time of day it was. There are many places with similar atmosphere with drinks at half the price.
