I would like to inform visitors to Dublin's fair city that The Temple bar pub is an extortionately expensive place to visit. Pints are a whopping 7.45. Mean is the only word I can use to describe this level of pricing. The owner of this...More

We went in for our first Guinness of the weekend and were not disappointed. It is ireland down to a tee, exactly what we wanted. The live music was brilliant, the service was quick and the atmosphere and ambiance was second to none. Brilliant place!
