Nearly 8 euro for a pint, 2.50 euro for a packet of crisp. Really take advantage of tourists. DO NOT GO HERE.

€19.90 for pint of carlsberg and heinken and 2 packet of crisps. If you like your money, then I would avoid this place.

I recently visited this pub. Absolutely ridiculous price for a beer. Ok it has Irish music and it is a traditional Irish pub, but totally not worth the price they charge for drinks. This is a total tourist trap. Be warned. There are better places with better prices very nearby.

If you want to know how does a real irish pub atmosphere is, you definitely need to visit the Temple Bar, specially on Thursday or Friday when there are a lot of people and live music. Suddenly you will be singing and dancing irish songs while everyone around you smiles you. Of course you will need a good beer in... More

A lively place, always busy yet somehow the staff remain friendly and on top of things. Live music almost continuously, with some special acts. Check out All Folk'd Up if you can. Great selection of whisk(e)ys and quality bar snacks. Touristy, yes. A must, yes.

We were looking for traditional irish music and this turned out to be the perfect venue. Excellent 3 piece band, an enthusiastic audience and table service for drinks and bar food.

Real insight into Irish history and culture with great local music and a wide variety of Irish beers, whiskey not to mention your general brands! The temple area is thriving, full of tourists and locals absorbing this colourful neighbourhood of Central Dublin! Bit pricey on the drinks front! Take the credit card! Tried Guinness and surprisingly like it! You can... More

A must visit in Dublin. But a tourist Mecca . Not a place to meet locals. Expensive and loud. Good music but don't spend too much on overpriced drinks. A placer to see and then leave for more authentic pub experience.

Attracts a lot of people---you can find a seat...just wait a bit and something will open up. Good music from a band. Some sang along. I had imagined it to be a super rowdy place, but it was not - just people hanging out and having a GREAT time, kicking back some pints. Loved it.
