Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My wife and I took a walking tour that started and ended at Temple Bar. Don't forget to visit upstairs for a surprise. Especially for history buffs. End the tour with an Irish beverage of your choice.

Yes its a tourist trap, yes its overpriced and overcrowded.
There are enough staff on to ensure you get served fast, plus serving staff at tables.
Worth a visit but no need to spend the whole afternoon there.

Walked through at lunch time on a Friday and it was packed. Came back around 5:30 Friday evening and it was standing room only. Still had a few beers and chatted with friendly folks from England. Really felt like the old Irish pub.

Just too touristy. It's a pity. Too much street furniture and rubbish on the streets. Avoid - its dirty, noisy and smelly and it is not a reflection of real Ireland

Great bar. Staff are friendly and will take orders at your table if walking past. You can also order on online to your table. It’s so busy that I wouldn’t want to even try to get to the bar! Live music is great. Decor and atmosphere exactly what you’d expect from this bars reputation. Drinks selection is massive!! We had the food too and it was lovely.

People complain often about the prices at the bar (around 8/9 euro a pint…13 euro a cocktail). But all the bars in this area are like this, Dublin is an very expensive place for all tourists.

Big downside here is it’s always very busy, but insanely busy from around 2pm onwards…and this is during off season in Nov :-/ Just expect the worst and you might get lucky and land a table or at least somewhere to lean.

The only negative about this bar was the massive amounts of people. Did manage to find a seat to listen to the live performer. What a party atmosphere - even at 3 in the afternoon!

A very popular bar that attracts lots of tourists (including myself). Very good atmosphere. However the drinks were very pricey and the place was nearly packed during the daytime so would be unsure of how packed it would be during the evening.

Would recommend to go in the evening for the full experience. No change for drinks which seems to be the norm in this bar. However the live music was great and if you’re in Dublin you’ve got to visit !
