This pubs atmosphere was amazing, there was live music and it was BRILLIANT everyone was singing and dancing along. Only problem is that it really was so busy you couldn't move. Get here early.

The Temple Bar Pub is a great spot to enjoy some traditional music and nose from their extensive selection of Irish Whisky, including house whiskies. The food includes a bit of seafood and a very nice sandwich selection, I had the smoked salmon and it was very nice. Of all the Irish Coffee I tried in Dublin I liked it... More

Popped in for one drink and 4 pints late were still there. A great pint of Guinness along with the relaxed atmosphere, live folk music and the odd local springing up to dance we simply did not want to leave. A must visit if your in town. This was a Sunday afternoon and can imagine it will be packed on... More

When visiting Dublin you have to stop off here at least once then find a another pub to spend the rest of your evening in which you won't be paying crazy prices and be able to find a seat. The music was great and a wonderful atmosphere. However plenty of better pubs with equally good music better food and more... More

Came around noon on a Thursday and got some seats. There was live music already and, by the time we left an hour or so later, the place was really filling up. Good service, food (literally 100 sandwiches), and drinks. The place was all decked out for Christmas. An obligatory stop in Dublin and it shouldn't be missed.
