“Outdoor Toilet”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

This place is populated mainly by drunks. Lots of hen and stag parties in Dublin for the weekend mainly from he U.K. Males urinating against the walls are a common site as are both sexes vomiting on the pavement.

“Fantastic place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Lovely area in central Dublin with good food, nice shops, many pubs and fantastic buildings. Good place to go if you are travelling alone, you will meet a lot of nice people and have fun.

“Not for everyone”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Temple Bar is ok during the day and it has a lively atmosphere. However at night time it takes on a different experience. Known for stag and hen parties it is not a nice place to visit at night (except of course if this is what your looking for!) It does have some good restaurants and there is always something going on but don't expect a quite time!

“Temple Bar Square”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Another pedestrian friendly area of the city with many bars and restaurants, including the Hard Rock Cafe Dublin. Lots of people and lots of people watching. High energy area with unlimited eating drinking and eating choices.

“Temple Bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

One of the oldest pubs in the city. Irish music was great. Drinks were great. The people watching is good. The bar also has a nice biergarten. Food is also available, but we did not eat there. However, the food we saw coming out of the kitchen looked good. There is a nice souvenir shop right next door to the pub.
