This is a good place to get your bearings in Dublin and hang out with other tourists. It was designed as a tourist attraction. Don't eat or drink here; it's overpriced and you can find much better and more authentic.

Fantastic live music being played inside and out with a lively, joyous atmosphere. The locals are very friendly and the area is central hive of activity with people from all over... More

Staying within walking distance of Temple Bar will guarantee lots of good places to eat, drink, listen to music, and party. Temple Bar can get REALLY busy and crowded - especially at night. You will find better prices and a little more quiet further away from Temple Bar. This is, of course, a matter of taste (and maybe age).

Too expensive, too busy. It's okay to walk through and experience the culture but it is just too expensive and all the bars and food outlets are too busy.

I had the best time here, a street full of pubs and restaurants - live music every night. If your out for the whole night, try and find a place, get your seat early as the pubs and bars get very busy and it will be hard to find a good seat

We went to the bar for a drink when it was very early and quiet! It's a fascinating place but would not like to be there when busy so if you want a quick pint of Guinness go early!

Great atmosphere, they provide live music every day. The drinks were a little expensive but it is worth it for the location and atmosphere. Had a great time.

You've got to pop in for a drink while here as it's the place to see. Great atmosphere and great Guinness. Very busy so you'll be lucky to get in let alone a seat!
