Great atmosphere, very lively and good craic but very very expensive. Stayed only for one drink but would have stayed longer only for the price of drinks!

A lively pub with lots of bars. Live music during afternoon. Not as expensive as had been led to believe- what you would expect in a city pub. Friendly helpful staff. Food looked and smelled delicious. Well worth a visit but can get crowded as afternoon progresses

What a brilliant atmosphere this bar has! Live Singers all day, reasonable prices! It's looks really small on the outside but lots of different areas to sit! We didn't eat but the food going on other tables looked lovely! The beer garden is a must see!

We went here for food and drinks after a rather long day shopping in Dublin. We were looking enough to get a table, and decided not just to have a drink or five, but to get ourselves a meal there at Temple. The bar didnt disappoint us. The food is good, and just after we sat down, the local music... More

Visited The Temple Bar multiple times during our two-day trip. The atmosphere is exactly what you would expect from an old Irish Tavern. The place is quite large with two bars for service, and several rooms for seating as well as live music. According to my wife, the Oysters are fantastic!

The atmosphere in this pub is like nothing ive ever seen! Live singers and everyones so happy - maybe its the Guinness, maybe its the people, maybe its the music maybe its just Dublin! A definite must visit for some authentic Irish Craic - a pints not cheap though!
