So we ate at Temple Bar in the Temple Bar. It was delicious, and honestly if you can't find something to like on their menu of 100 sandwiches (not kidding, there are 100 different sandwiches, and each of the servers have their own favorites). We got a great table, perfect for people watching. The food was good, and quick, great... More

This place rocks. The are the original and a happening place day and night. Everybody wants to get their picture taken in front of it. While I was there, the live music was aimed at a younger crowd. Temple Bar gets its name from the Temple family that once owned the land; "bar" in this case means a path along... More

Temple bar @ Temple bar is a must-see place when you visit Dublin. Great place to enjoy a pint or two and also local food. Especially awesome was the live music that different local duos played with acoustic guitar and banjo! Loved it! The place is always full which means that there is also a great athmosphere all the time.... More

History on the making (or made, really)...well located and quite a hub for people all over the world. We had two of the Irish coffees with chips (yes, we had that!) as a happy hour choice of that day. Worth a visit or two.

It's so classic you must visit. Like almost every tourist attraction you will find people from around the world and this is great cause everyone wants to have a great time. The music was great and staff friendly and helpful. Great atmosphere although too crowded.

This is the iconic Temple Bar pub, so I felt like I had to at least have a pint of Guinness there. And that is all I had. It was very crowded. I later heard from locals that the prices go up every hour, and that tourists are charged more than locals. I can't confirm this, and I wasn't inclined... More

This is a great wee pub, and gives you a true Irish vibe about Dublin. They have live music throughout the day and you can get a great pint of Guinness there. The price for two Guinness was €12.60 what is cheaper than I'm used to in Sweden but still a lot for the uk prices. Overall great wee place... More

I visited this place on a Friday evening. it was at 10pm totally crowed. the live music was ok, nothing special. I guess you have to go there if you visit Dublin, but I believe there are better pubs & bars
