Temple Bar is just another part of Dublin which has changed beyond recognition in recent years. In its current form, it is only a 12 year-old project. It was planned specifically to bring in tourist money, and represents NOTHING of what Dublin is really like....More

Loads of things to do, people to talk with & have a drink with. Don't bother with tourists. Talk with the locals

The bar is beautiful and the atmosphere is fantastic. It’s crowded and so much fun! Exactly what you think an Irish pub would be.

Temple bar is brilliant if you’re a tourist or if you’re look for a bit of a laugh and good Irish music. Not somewhere you could drink all night as it’s very expensive but the atmosphere is great.

Lots of different bars, most with live music and cold beer. Pretty crowded area but was really pretty lit up at night. Be aware that a lot of the bars in this area gradually increase the prices of drinks as the night progresses.
