These guys used to do craft beer, but rumour is that they made a deal with one of the macros which put a stop to it. Last time I was in here, the only independent craft beer they had was OíHaras which is at the milder end of the scale, Franciscan Well is passed off as craft, but it was acquired by Molson Coors a good while ago. Iíd give this one a miss, they donít even do craft bottles anymore.

I donít think they have 40 taps, at least not 40 different beers. Most beers were from Irish macro breweries. Disappointing! Other reviewers are talking about lots of craft beers. Maybe a concept change recently? I only had one beer, Franciscan Well Rebel Red, and as always: half pint! Not as crowded as The Temple Bar and mainstream easy listening pop music. Also live music every day. (Visited February 16th 2016)

A quite large pub with many rooms. Can be very crowded, but still a quite cousy and nice place. Absolutely a fine beer selection! No problems to recommend this place. Located in the temple bar area. Easy to find.

Fantastic range with tonnes of Irish craft beers as well as all the macro you could ever wish to tick. Beerlist now on their website too, which makes planning a little easier. reasonably priced, no "half pint tax". Not ordered off the menu but the meat and cheese platters are very good. Very generous to beer groups and allow the use of their upstairs space for home-brew competitions. Often packed, usually live music in the evenings so can get a little noisy. Hard to miss the bright blue exterior.

arge pub in the middle of Temple Bar area of Dublin, with wooden interiors and an almost 360 degrees bar, serving a large variety of beers from some 40 lines I reckon. On my visit, the amount of Irish craft micros was extensive at around 15, with some more line dedicated to UK, Belgian and US craft (likes of Brewdog, Sierra Nevada, Founders). Cider represented as well. The rest is macro lagers. Did not check out the bottle list as taps had more than enough ticks to keep me interested during my stay. Cannot fully comment on food: got only a cheese-cake, good and reasonably priced for the area. Craft beer prices seemed quite high though. They appear to play sports on TV, but not obtrusive with screen in corners of the pub, and have a daily live music performance, which is generally welcomed. All in all, I would need to check rotation of the micro lines, but on a single visit this pub ranks among the top spots in Dublin.

A gem in Temple Bar where most of the offerings are oriented towards the tourists. Tonnes of brews on draught. Food is pretty good. Atmosphere is nice and the servers are pretty cool to chat with.

Took a small party here recently and they were surprised by the choice available and the great atmosphere. We had a few each, the OíHaraís going down well. Great to find a place like this in Templebar. Comfortable, clean and a nice place to people watch through the window! Staff were polite and helpful. As Arne says íIíll be back!í

Traditional looking place in the middle of Temple Bar, quite spacious with two big bars, so you should always look at the selection at both which always has lots of interesting things. Nice ambiance with live music in the afternoon/ Nice lesuirly place.

Lot of taps, i think there were 30. Lot of craft beers and the regular big ones, all that in the Tempel Bar area with the big brews.
