Excellent and lively music allowing you to have a good ole sing song! Drinks are a little more expensive than the other areas but it is what it is!

Twisty little side streets have a multitude of pubs, bars and restaurants, prices to suit all pockets, though quality seems variable. There are also several good hotels in the area or close by, and some more at the budget spectrum. Very handy if you want...More

We were travelling with my nephew and he was very keen to visit Temple Bar. He was disappointed and viewed the pubs etc as a touristic rip off. Still fun to walk the streets but safe the pub/restaurants for another part of town.

We went to the Temple Bar on a Sunday evening. It was super busy with a line to be served at the bar. It was very hot in there (no air conditioning) and the bar and every corner was packed. Ireland had very good weather...More

We couldn't be in Dublin on my birthday without going to Temple bar. Lots of nice pubs and nightlife. We had a few drinks and took in some live music.

Always a fantastic atmosphere when we popped in for a drink and a sing song. All the musicians we saw were brilliant. You really can't visit zdublin without popping in for a Guinness.

If you don't mind endless stag and hen groups, Temple Bar on Friday and Saturday nights can be manic, but good natured fun. Huge choice of pubs and eateries, many of the former having live music on several floors. Not the cheapest place to eat...More

When I was there a couple brought two young kids in (around 6 years old) and they could have a soft drink. It was about 4pm and there didn't appear to be an issue. I think you probably wouldn't want to take them into a bar... More
