If you want to go to a pub where you cant move, spend ages to buy a drink and spend a fortune for the privilege then this is the place for you. The only plus side was that the band was very good who were playing that night. Not sure why this bar is so special, there are a lot... More

Great atmosphere in Temple Bar late afternoon/early evening. Drinks more expensive than surrounding area and pubs. Would recommend to anyone visiting Dublin City

The older part is darker and the extensions are red so when you go in there four bars at least and lots of different places to sit. Live music after 2pm and latter after 6pm. Not the cheapest pub but is interesting and very busy even on our visit at 3pm on a Thursday it was packed.

First visit to Dublin and the temple bar & it was not a disappointment! Brilliant atmosphere and a huge menu (140 different whiskeys and 100 different sandwich fillings!) Would definitely recommend!

This is a must visit if you go to Dublin, Guinness is lovely! Gets extremely busy but I don't mind that, live music played all day the later on you go the better the atmosphere we found. They have their own temple bar whiskey and it's that good I wasn't a well boy the next day

Temple Bar Pub is very lively, day and night, but be prepared to wait a bit if you have a larger party. The live music, tasty cocktails and fun crowd draws people from all over the world. If you're in Dublin, it's not to be missed.
