Had read the various articles claiming this pub was a rip off. Decided to see what the fuss was about. I admit the prices are steep, but you pay for the experience as well as the drinks (and crisps). I can honestly say I will go to the temple bar pub again. The live music is amazing and the atmosphere... More

There are many places in Dublin to go where your hard money will be appreciated and will go much further. Do some research before coming and avoid this tourist trap.

One of the worst experiences of our visit to Dublin. Avoid at all costs. Try the much lovlier and authentic Dublin pubs around Baggot street where the Guinness is better and half the price!

€7.45 for a watered down pint and €2.50 for a pack of crisps. Overheard the bar staff laughing at a large group of American tourists who had just received their bill for a round of drinks. The person who bought the first round had to leave to go to the nearest ATM. I will never return to this pub.

The pints were over priced and the bar was filled with Americans...even the music was Johnny Cash. Now being an American myself, it wasn't that my compatriots where sharing the bar that was the problem, but simply the lack of Irish in an Irish bar. We've traveled a long way to enjoy this proper pint and this bar choice was... More

If you want to see a true traditional Irish pub, this isn't it. They are probably the dearest pub in Ireland and definitely not the best. This place is listed as an "attraction" on Trip advisor. I don't know why, there are so many better pubs

This has to be the rip off of the century, anyone who drinks there is naive. Pubs like this give Dublin a very bad name.

I would like to inform visitors to Dublin's fair city that The Temple bar pub is an extortionately expensive place to visit. Pints are a whopping 7.45. Mean is the only word I can use to describe this level of pricing. The owner of this establishment owns pubs all over and is certainly not stuck for cash. As a Dubliner... More

Only go to this pub if you want to be ripped off the price of drinks go up and up later on in the evening. There may be music but there is music in most pubs in Dublin and Ireland and they don't charge you any extra no matter what time of the day it is. €7.45 a pint and... More
