There are a lot of pubs around Temple Bar to choose from. The Norseman is less noisy than many and while it has live music you can also sit and enjoy a pint and a chat with the music as background ariund the far side of the bar.

The bartender told us this was the case and we were not disappointed. Ideal for a quick stop warm up and they do food too! Highly recommended it as the staff were so friendly we even went back the next day.

we stopped in for a quick bite to eat and stayed because the live music was fabulous...Robin Hurt has a beautiful voice and it was a pleasure to listen. The food was okay, basic food with nothing to complain about other than it was plain and had little flavour. Go for the drinks and music.

It's a great pub, sometimes it gets crowded at night, but the drinks are good and the service is faster and good, but some drinks are expensive, I payed 3 euros for a coke. The music is good too! I'll come back. :)

Atmosphere was good when we arrived. Customer service was quite ok and bar's location at the Temple Bar area is just great. Live music and beer. What else can you ask for? You can also order food at the Norseman.

Excellent pub! Just nipped in to get out of the rain but ended up staying for a few hours! Great & friendly staff, good prices for drinks and great facilities. Never tried any of the food, so can't comment! But other people around us ordered some & it smelled & looked fab! Will be back when we next visit Dublin!

Came here for few drinks as part of our wander round Temple Bar region. Nice drinks and big screen so could watch rugby. Not cheapest but we were in Dublin and nothing cheap in Dublin. Very entertaining barman who was very helpful.

What a brilliant night we spent here. I found it mazing how one guy and his guitar could have a pub full of people from so many nationalities dancing and singing!! Taking request from all genres of music and smiling all the way through. Bravo

While we were all adjusting to Dublin , Ireland time, we arrived for dinner a bit early.... We walked up the stairs and were greeted with a warm welcome. The chicken pie with gravy was our comfort food of choice. Yum!

Thank LeeAnn S
