Heart of Irish drinks

As all the tips and recommendations say, it's an excellent bar to taste Irish beers and wide range of whiskies. Ham plate perfectly complements your drink.

Great place to just chill out for a while. In the cobbled area of Dublin it's a must see. With live music and a smoking area in the middle. Irish coffees are lovely. Guinness and oysters a favourite it's worth a look.

The Temple Bar is a fantastic irish pub experience. We went there for lunch and the music, beer and food were top notch. The salmon sandwich was so fresh and tasty with irish dark bread, potato salad and a touch of dessert at the corner of the plate ..........just right!!!!

Stopped her with family for drinks - packed with 20 - somethings. It was loud and very upbeat but for my husband and me - we would like a quieter place to talk. Bartenders were friendly - a great Dublin experience!

We went here most nights to start our night before a meal and it was a great fun place to be. One night we went back and went round all the pub, definitely worth it as so very quirky and we met lots of nice people having fun and enjoying the hospitality, we will return!

Have been t many bars across the world by now but have nothing seen anything like this place ever before. The collections of drinks is one of the best I have witnessed; the ambience so full of energy that one doesn’t want to leave this place soon. Must go if you are in Dublin.

Unless you have totally abstained from alcohol, (some people have to or even want too (hmm?), you really cannot avoid THE Temple Bar in Dublin. It seems to draws you in like a magnet. The quintessential Irish Tourist Bar, lots of nook and crannies, much bigger inside than it looks from the outside (a bit like the Tardis), in your... More

Loved the guitarist as we sat and sipped our beer and cider. What a lovely atmosphere in this place - everybody enjoying themselves, and it was just as good as when I was last here 20 years ago. No food eaten, just a lovely place to have a drink.

Our first night in Dublin we decided to explore Temple Bar district and found ourselves in Temple Bar. Great atmosphere, lots of people from all over the globe and entertainment. Can't comment on the food, only went for the nightlife.
