If you don't like big crowds then this is not the place for you. But if you do then it is an absolute must do on your Dublin trip. Local music is fantastic along with as many different ales, beers, larger, whiskeys than you could ever wish for. Great friendly staff with a fantastic Irish atmosphere... and this was all... More

This was the second time I have been to Temple Bar! Both times it has had an amazing atmosphere. Live music and the people are great. As with most pubs in that area it is usually very crowded so don't think you'll get a seat it can be very cramped! Would visit again for the experience!

If you come to Dublin you must visit the Temple Bar. It's full of bars and restaurants but the most fun is watching the people here! Great Craic and the music isn't bad either!

The most iconic pub in Dublin, so much so that the whole area is named after it. It is crowded 8 pm onwards! Best bet is to go in, grab a drink, soak in the atmosphere and then head out to a more relaxed bar alongside. Try the irish coffee and some whisky cocktails. Guiness is also the preferred tipple...

Not the best pub in the nearby, but a must see. Crowded, full of drunk tourists but good Irish beers and whiskeys, live music. What else is needed? :)

We visit it on a sunny sunday. A lot of people. A lot of bars and pubs. Almost everywhere is live music every day. A book market on sunday.

What a fun pub to be in. There is music all day long. We especially enjoyed the Irish traditional music played. Our waiter was from Italy and was very friendly, taking our picture and taking time to just chat. A very lively section of Dublin.

It's a crowded place, but it has a great music and a great public! It's a tradicional pub in Dublin, you must go! There is no problem with you don't wanna drink some pint, you can drink water or coke, for example.

We were there for St. Patrick's and it was jammed full of tourists, as we expected. Great bars though, but after taking a stroll, cross the Liffy and drink cheaper on the other side.
