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.

Constantly busy, staff were great and really friendly. The live music in here was amazing!! There was a big storm when we were there and ended up staying in here early afternoon through the night was brilliant!

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.

Heard about this place and it lived up to its name and reputation. We had an absolute ball as I brought my Canadian friends to this irish music Mecca.

Although it is a must see in Dublin expect to pay well over the average for a pint and expect it to be very very busy. Best time to go in early in the week probably a Monday or Tuesday to avoid all the people who come to Dublin on short weekend trips. One bit of advise though mind your... More

It's a common place along temple bar (the area) to hear live music. I was never disappointed with the bands! However drinks are way overpriced (even more than other pubs in the area). Pints can be 7€ and an Irish coffee was 9€. The drinks are good, but not THAT good. Food is also crazy. Tuna salad sandwich is 13.50€.... More

The Temple Bar pub is one of the best hostelries in TB. We had the best pints and craic there, we had several pints in fact at different times during our recent stay in Dublin. The place has a wonderful atmosphere and is very welcoming, with olde worlde charm and regular live entertainment. Perched up at the window we watched... More
