Great evening, very busy but not a problem. Atmosphere was outstanding - couldn't fault it. Typical Irish pub with music, fun and friendliness.

Crazy in a good way - you cannot visit Dublin and not go in for a round. Packed all the time; but if you just keep wandering around...you'll find a place to settle in. Be careful...you may not leave :) The center of the pub has an open air ceiling section for smokers, which is a happy compromise - the... More

A must-see on a trip to Dublin. Great pub with a good atmosphere and interesting history. Drinks were a bit pricey but worth it.

Perfect afternoon lunch! We were four weary travels trying to get our legs under us after an overnight flight. Trying to stay awake until the evening. We were hungry and the Temple Bar Pub did not disappoint us. Crowded? Yes! Noisy? Yes! Musical? Definitely! Just what we were looking for on our first day! Service? Wonderful, friendly, helpful! Food? We... More

Crowded, noisy, lots of fun. When in Dublin you must try the Temple Bar Pub at least once. Music is playing, people and drinking and happy. Exactly what you expect from an Irish Pub.
