For smokers it is very nice with large indoor open roof smoking area. You can even drink with locals here, and meet people from all over the world. Hen night... More

On a drift night out. Nothing more or less than any other pub in the district. Name itself a trifle overrated...

The best things in life are not cheep. Cheep is buying a beer in the supermarket and drink at home, get some crisps, turn the radio on and be drunk and bored to death. I do not understand why people says that it is overpriced and a tourist trap as it is only a few cents more than elsewhere. We... More

Excellent place to have a beer and fun. Typical pub on Ireland, but if you go after 6 you won't find a place to seat. It's a must go

Easily 5/5. You really can't say you've been yo Dublin without having a pint in the original Temple Bar. Yes it's crowded and very touristy and still the best place to be on a Friday night. Live music every evening, friendly people all around and a ginormous selection of beer and booze. Perfect.

Nice place, music live, not cheap but if you are visiting Dublin, a good place, avoiding Saturday afternoon and evening if possible.

A must! This place is amazing! It's Dublin at its best, you have to drinks a Guinness here any night of the week, it's always full and the atmosphere is awesome. Live music too!

As a native I would not cross the threshold! The price of a pint is extortionate... They cannot justify these prices with the volumes they sling out to tourists. Not even a great pint. Go in for a look by all means. It's a lively and traditional themed pub. But forget staying there for a session walk 5 mins to... More

I have just returned from a two night city break in Dublin - and the first pub we found was this one! We spent hours propped up on the bar stools, drinking delicious cocktails listening to the live music! Cocktails are around 10 Euro and a corona is around 6.30.
