Great fun

Live music, good crowd of people - a very enjoyable place. Since we have heard so much about this place, we needed to see it ourselves and were definitely not disappointed.

A lot of people, even on a Monday night. If you are looking for a quiet bar it is not the place! A lot of small rooms and you can be almost lost every time that you go tithe restroom. I also ordered a sandwich and it was very good!

We stopped in here after a long day tour, and had a drink. The bar was packed with people having a great time, singing and drinking. The prices of the drinks as the night goes on!

Guinness and oysters is a must in Dublin. Great atmosphere, live music. Don't buy a tshirt though, there is a Temple Bar shop next door, where choice is much bigger!

Four years ago, while visiting Dublin, I enjoyed THE BEST Irish coffee EVER. Unfortunately, I couldn't say the same after my most recent visit. The Irish Coffee was bitter and weak. The music and atmosphere were just as I remembered, which made up for the disappointing Irish coffee.

Having viewed the Temple Bar on Earth Cams for a long time I just had to go and visit while in Dublin. I texted my son back in Houston when we were there and he took a screen shot of us in front of the bar from thousands of miles away. The Temple Bar is everything you would think an... More

Been here 2 nights ago and when I come back to Dublin this is a 'must come back bar'. The music was amazing when the live music was on and when they played cd also.
