Traveled with my fiancé for a weekend in Dublin to see Ed Sheeran. Location couldn’t be better. Right in the heart of everything, no more than a 10 min walk from any of the main attractions. If you like your sleep, or enjoy sleeping before 3am, don’t stay here! Temple Bar is THE party district, so we were frequently woken by drunken partiers… didn’t bother us too much as we only stayed 2 nights but may bother some! Rooms were adequate. Clean & tidy. Beds were uncomfortable and on wheels so if you turned too harshly in your sleep, you woke up 2 ft away from the headboard! Pillows were too soft, almost non-existent. But for 2 nights, it was fine. I would stay again for a short break. Any longer & go somewhere not in Temple Bar.

An absolute disgrace of a Guinness. The woman had no idea as to how a Guinness should be poured... and of all days this was St Patricks day.. a Guinness like this on St Patricks day from a famous pub in temple bar.... absolutely terrible, and the prices as well... 8:90 for a pint... rip off. AVOID.

If you want to have a nice dinner in Dublin then you must visit the Norseman pub & restaurant in the Temple bar district. The pub downstairs is cozy with pubfood and music and upstairs you have a splendid restaurant with great Beef &Guinness stew. The Bailey cheesecake is also super. But the Guinness pint is best.

The manager was really rude and didn’t even listen to a single word we said. Also it was really expensive. We wanted to have a beer and one of our friends didn’t get a drink because they did not like him so we needed to leave the place. And it is a shame they don’t let everybody in

Strange night . Had a couple of drinks . Great singer who sang for ages . But pub was dark and seemed a bit flat . See peas good and everyone checked for cove passports. Prices were average for Temple Bar . Bar was full , maybe just one of those nights

A fun night ! The doorman was brilliant- despite being busy, he was friendly and took the effort to find us a seat ( as it is Covid Times) and was very welcoming. The Guinness & whiskey were wonderful - music was atmospheric! A tradition Irish Bar!

We visited here whilst staying near Temple Bar for a few days. Lovely place, live music but…. We paid 14 euros for a small bottle of Prosecco!!! We had a few drinks around town in the afternoon and also elsewhere in Temple Bar but they were not charging 14 euros for what is a glass and a half of Prosecco! Most places were charging between 7-9 euros for a small bottle. We know Temple Bar is expensive and Dublin can be too but this is just taking the Mickey out of tourists. It has been a hard time for all hospitality businesses but there is no need to rip people off.

Stayed at the Norseman on 9/5-7. Great location in Temple Bar area. Room was clean, good showers with plenty of hot water. You're in Temple Bar so it's noisy. Staff was great and responsive. If looking for a place in TB area, I'd consider the Norseman.
