This area is famous for its Irish pubs featuring live music and plenty of people around. However, it is considered quite touristy and most locals wouldn't really come here. It is still however well worth a visit.

We visited the temple bar pub one evening as we were staying in an apartment in temple bar. The pub and the whole of temple bar had a good vibe, loved the people, the music and the atmosphere. Was quite pricey but was a good experience.

Overcrowded place with band playing International hits. It's not Easy to get to the bar. If you're lucky enough to sit in front of the bar you have to wait ages until busy Staff gets you drink.
