Great music and the drinks were reasonable! I loved seeing all the badges from law enforcement and fireman hanging on the wall.

Loved The Temple Bar from the gorgeous flowers outside to the roomy interior. Had a great time. It is in the heart of the city and so many things to see and shops everywhere.

We had a few drinks and a bite to eat. The different rooms were very nice, the staff very friendly, but the drinks were too expensive.
