This is a good place to go at noon and early afternoon. After 7, the place becomes uncomfortable crowded. They have musicians all day taking 2 hours at the time. Some at very good, and a few are mediocre. The atmosphere is great and contagiously happy. Food is mediocre, but I will come back to the Temple Bar just for... More

It was one of the must-visit places on my list before travelling to Dublin for a couple of days business trip. Luckily, I got the chance to visit this lovely place with my colleague during our short staying. The place filled with lively Irish music, crowded of course. We enjoyed it very much, especially the oysters and the meat platters.... More

It's such a gorgeus bar! Beer is expensive but it doesnt matter because you can spend a great time inside with typical music.

Walking around Temple Bar in the drizzle, we stopped in out of the rain to have a pint. Great selection of beers; music was lively and very crowded. A bit over-priced though. Not a great place if you do not like smoke.

This appears to be at the epicentre of everything that's happening in Temple Bar and it was a very lively spot but a bit too lively and too busy for our liking

We came to Temple Bar for a drink after dinner and ended up staying for a couple hours. This place is popular for a reason! So many different rooms, each with its own character. Great music and a ton of fun people. We met friends and wish we could have stayed even longer.
