The most famous bar in Dublin. Very crowdy. We couldn't really get in due to the mass of people celebrating.

Overall it was an ok experience. The bar was very over crowded and there were no seats to sit at. The poor bentender was runnin around like a mad man because it was so over crowded and we had to wait a long time for our drinks.

It was our first day in Dublin, Temple Bar was one of our first stop to feel night city atmosphere. Unique place, with local live band, nice people around, not so expensive prices for that kind of tourist attraction - two pints of Guinness near 12 euro! We were enjoyed so much!

We traveled in 2012. Lots of little shops and pubs. Live music everywhere! Some of the best food I've ever had

Well if you go to Dublin you must go to sample Temple Bar. So there is only 1 pub to go while your in Temple Bar and that's The Temple Bar!!! Busy and expensive! Nearly €30 for 2 wines and beers! However, the atmosphere is great along with the entertainment!

I would avoid this area unless you're apart of a visiting group who are looking to get drunk and pay a lot in doing so. Far better bars that are cheaper if you look

If you like a Guinness then you need to visit this area, loads of pubs, loads of singing and laughing. Well worth it.
