After walking through the dirty cobble streets of "templebar district" where many stinky and noisy tourist traps ("pubs") were avoided by us, we had a nice break with a cool drink (Sauvignon blanc and Ginger Ale) for a decent price (total around 8 Euros) Friendly...More

Finally a authentic Irish Bar close to the Temple Bar area we are staying. We spent the first few nights getting robbed at the Temple Bar establishments...saw a American flag here and said what the heck. Once inside the bartender Martin, I believe, treated us...More

A short boat for a few beers and memories brought back of being there with a dear friend who is now no longer with us. Great Tipp pub and friendly staff and customers.

Had a drink here on New Year's Eve. It's a really quirky pub and not what I expected from the outside. I could spend hours looking at all the photos and posters on the walls. Very centrally located but didn't feel like a real city...More
