This is my favourite pub in a Temple bar, great drinks, including mango absolut! There is loads of live music and always a fantastic atmosphere. Don't be put off by how busy it is when you walk in the main entrances, keep going through there is another bar at the back where it's easy to get served.

Great pub, fantastic atmosphere, very busy(although service at the bar was always very quick) live music was amazing, very pricey though, over fifteen euros for a pint of guinness and a bacardi and coke !

Visited on the 20th December... The place is fantastic! Definately for the tourists, live music, food is available but can comment as we didn't have food. The Guinness however was ever flowing... Certainly worth a visit. I will be back!

I had my farewell dublin pint and raw oysters here and it's a beautiful pub bang in the centre of temple bar. Great music amazing premium wiskey selection although expensive so it's a nice pub for a couple pints. 24 hours after eating the oysters I became very ill.

We did a pub crawl in Dublin so we stopped at all the famous pubs across Dublin. This is a fun stop, and a must-do. It's touristy, but there are still quite a few locals there. It was a Friday night, so probably extra crowded.

We were here on New Year's Eve so, naturally, it was excessively crowded; however, we could still get a feel for the charm of the place. It is definitely worth stopping in for a beer.

Going in here is like going into the idea I had of what is a typical pub in Dublin!! It is so nice and so cosy and the atmosphere....wow!!! Couldn't be better! Lots of happy people, good musicians playing good songs, a lot of sing-along songs, and good food. The service was also perfect, we had a charming young girl... More

Guinness, Whiskey, live music, happy friendly people, what else can you ask for? This was the first place I visited when I arrived in Dublin and it was absolutely fantastic. Amazing atmosphere and food, I would say this is a must-do for any first time visitor. Definitely a standing item on any agenda for a visit to Temple Bar!

Great pub, if you're a fan of the black stuff then this is the place to get it. A bit pricey but then again you expect that in Dublin. Olde Worlde feel to it, rustic charm, a real treasure. Pint of guinness and a jameson's superb!
