Someone recommended the Temple Bar for lunch and we were not disappointed at all. It was a little confusing at first because the area is called Temple Bar do we mistakenly went into the wrong bar three times before finding The Temple Bar. The bar is big, but very busy and seats go fast. There was some nice live music.... More

We went to go inside Temple Bar, but there was so much great local entertainment out in front of it. We saw a great group with an electric fiddle!

It is an area in Dublin that offers a variety of pubs, restaurants, touristy shops and great people watching. Very crowded on Friday and Saturday nights. Lots of music in the pubs and it is a lot of fun. Check it out!

The famous Temple bar is so famous that everything around it uses its name: Temple cafe, temple restaurant, temple souvenir...I had a beer with a colleague at work and the ambience was phenomenal..we felt like we were irish in 5 min!!! Many tourists there , especially from Europe. The decor is really nice and cozy!

Loads to see and do! An eclectic mix of bars and shops. We came down mid afternoon to avoid the night time madness but it was still enjoyable & we were able to soak up the atmosphere without it being overly packed

We stopped in here for a quick lunch. Good prices for sandwiches and beer. The pub itself is a must see - great people watching.

Popped for a drink in Temple Bar on the way back to the ferry. There was a live band, Key West, playing music in the street and an impressively large crowd gathering to watch. Drinks were super expensive but the weather was good and the music was fantastic, so it made up for it.
