This bar was a bit overpriced and not a very "Irish" experience...unless you consider Van Morrison and the Beetles to be Irish. The atmosphere is fun and it's definitely a loud sing-a-long kind of bar but it feels more like a college town on spring break than an Irish pub. If you just want to drink and party this is... More

Chose to visit this pub as we could hear music from the outside and we weren't disappointed. There was a singer on with a guitar and he was very entertaining. It was only mid afternoon but the pub was busy with everyone joining in singing and dancing. The ladies toilets could do with so renovating and the beer / cider... More

Auld Dubliner is a great place to go to hear live music, they had a band every time we went, always a fun crowd dancing - bartenders Steven & Connor were awesome!

First time in Dublin, what can I say..it was fab! Went here both nights while we were there, what a great atmosphere. Everyone was so friendly. Drinks were really expensive, but we knew that before we went. If you want a good night with great music, get yourself there, you won't be disappointed!

We did not enjoy our meals at the Auld Dubliner. Also, if you are looking for traditional Celtic music, we did not find it here. Both times we tried this establishment the live music playlist was more classic pop/soft rock.

Over priced drinks. Rude and unfriendly staff. The place seems dirty. Toilets needed attention! But no-one seemed to be servicing them.

I found the price of drink laughable. The place is outdated and grubby even for Templebar. I will not be returning.
