Of course, this was the first pub I went into, since I was not clear with the meaning of 'Temple Bar'. So, this is THE Temple bar. Probably everybody goes there first. Nevertheless, the place is great, the music and the live performers are awesome. Though make sure to go bit earlier and catch a good spot since it gets... More

Great atmosphere in Temple Bar late afternoon/early evening. Drinks more expensive than surrounding area and pubs. Would recommend to anyone visiting Dublin City

The older part is darker and the extensions are red so when you go in there four bars at least and lots of different places to sit. Live music after 2pm and latter after 6pm. Not the cheapest pub but is interesting and very busy even on our visit at 3pm on a Thursday it was packed.
