Went to the Temple Bar last week, what a place, the atmosphere was terrific, the music was just as expected fiddle and guitar , ballads and lively foot tapping music, all in all a fantastic experience. Bit pricey mind you, but was forewarned , but also worth every penny.

If you are visiting Dublin and wish to sample some of the atmosphere of a lively pub then The Temple Bar will fulfil your needs. It's big inside (made up of many nooks and crannies), loud, a little bit boisterous, informal and good fun. It's a real tourist magnet and probably seldom visited by locals. Expect to pay more for...

The temple bar. You can't be in Dublin and not visit it. Nice music and nice food. 1000 whiskies to choose from.... :) Super offer: 6 oysters + Guinness for 11.00 EUR. Totally worth it. Nice atmosphere!

Had to call in for the obligatory pint of Guinness. This pub oozes atmosphere, great Irish music, wide range of beers and very friendly staff. Wanted to stay all night, will definitely go back. DO NOT MISS

We travelled to Dublin and stumbled across this pub whilst the wife's were shopping. Very nice pub, full of memorabilia, Irish culture and great food and beer. This pub was full of like minded tourists some just popped in to have a look round, others to listen to the great live music that was being played. The Guinness is 6... More

I was once told that you couldn't say you've been to Dublin unless you'd visited the Temple Bar,well I've been,what an experience,you go mainly to drink up the atmosphere,the beer is secondary! The area and the pub are jam packed,we went on a saturday afternoon,music from all around,you end up drinking on the streets in roped off areas because the... More

A legend between the bars. The atmosphere with live music (sometimes to loud) is great and even though the pub is overcrowded, you get the drinks really quickly.

We went for drinks but primarily to hear trad music. The place was totally packed on a Wed early eve. Half of it is standing room only and many people come seemingly to just be in a famous place, not to really hear the music, because they were just shouting with each other or standing around looking dazed and confused....
