Great music, very busy, and most expensive pub we visited, but well worth the experience, it looks tiny outside, but really quite big when you get inside, busiest pub whenever we visited

We popped in for a drink while wandering around the area, although the atmosphere was good it is a very touristy pub with what I consider to be over inflated prices, if you visit the area pop in for a drink but make sure you have plenty of euros.

The Temple Bar is one of the most prominent bars in Dublin. For ambience, I'd say it was a packed place, with people across world and mainland Europe. Though, it is a fun place with live music.

Great place to visit. Been there several times when I Ireland. Lots of great "fun" meet people from around the "globe". Generally, very busy and most come in because of the name! The food is good, the prices do reflect, "that's it's a tourist" attraction!

Like most places in the temple bar area, the alcohol is not cheap. There's always live music, however most bars on the street do too, and I found most other places even better. I did really enjoy the inside/outside feel of the smoking patio.

The live music is brilliant, seven days a week. The food is excelent with a wide choice. Try some of the other local ales along with the black stuff.
