Good craic

You just have to go here when your in the area. The place is always busy with lots of tourists and the guy on the guitar certainly works the crowd. It is Temple Bar and it is expensive so be prepared. Good for a few quick drinks to get your night started.

We reserved a table for 10ppl, the music downstairs was brilliant and was packed - upstairs the barman was brilliant and very friendly - the pints were pricey but that's temple bat for you, it's a great spot for some good music and laughs!

Walking through Temple Bar and found a not to crowed bar on a Sunday night and grabbed a table, about 15 mins later this guy with a guitar starts up and the place is hopping, soon it's jammed and the atmosphere is fantastic, bar staff great, drinks expensive as in all temple bar area but the music was worth it,...

Had an absolute ball in the auld dubliner. Went in for the Guinness, stayed for the music and the atmosphere. Live music all weekend. Great craic! Average price for Dublin city centre, only cheaper place we found was the Hard Rock Cafe. The girlfriend and I were in there until 2.30am!

A favorite evening in Ireland. We could easily enjoy the music from the second floor during dinner, then joined the friendly audience below as we listened to some fabulous musicians. REALLY great pub in Dublin!

although most bars have live music, I loved the performances here more. The songs were great dance and sing-along songs. The drinks are quite expensive, but that's the price of Temple Bar I guess. I didn't have any food here though.

But we liked it! Typical bar for the Temple Bar area. Great musician playing guitar and singing excellent music. We only had beers so not sure of food. Cool spot to stop in and hang out for awhile or take a break from walking around. Kind of loud and small so definitely gets crowded at night. Again though, typical for... More

The waiting staff are unfriendly and the door staff are just rude. I would recommend to try the countless other bars before stepping a foot inside this one

A fine example of an Irish music pub, in common with a lot of the pubs in Temple bar there was an abundance of typical Irish music, also a typical 6 euro,s for a pint of Guinness, oh well, it was worth it

Music in here is great we got an amazing welcome and had a great day met a few new Irish friends in here. They change the live music quite frequently so there's always someone playing something you'll like
