On a Sunday afternoon, this place is filled to capacity, inside and out. There is live entertainment singing Irish music. You can tell that the locals enjoy coming here. Standing Room Only

Even though we visited Dublin in the off season of November, Temple Bar was buzzing through the night . A lot of great pubs line the street that is the center of Dublin' night life. The Temple Bar pub crawl was a great and an interesting experience of the local music scene.

Even though it was in 1st December the street was full the Bar full of life, seems to be one of the authentic oldest bar in the city. I think back to 15th century don't know the exact time must see a place

Must go out around, however the prices are over the average (as it is quite touristic). Dublin is an expensive city though, so even going to an alternative areas as George St. is going to be expensive (try both)

Live music every day of the week and a great atmosphere too! A bit too busy for my liking but that's because it's so good

Temple Bar attractive in a touristy way does not reflect on Irish culture. Without doubt designed for tourists, hen/stag parties some of the old buildings/pubs are reflective on Dublin years ago. However expect to pay Manhattan prices particularly late into the night.

A very popular place but think that is because of the name rather than how good it is. Drinks were overpriced, Hop House 13 charged €7.25 whereas at The Bank which is a much classier place was just €5.70. The place was full of Tourists and very few Irish but worth a visit just so you can say you have... More

This is a very "touristy" area- but that doesn't mean it is not worth taking a stroll through in the later afternoon. If you want to do some pub hopping, this is the place to consider. If you want to see what after bar close looks like in Dublin compared to where you're from originally (hint, it looks awfully similar)... More
