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 O’Hara’s 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 ’I’ll be back!’

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.

A very old bar getting a facelift. Lots of beer and a really nice staff that works the beers drinkers well. A nice Dub Pub.

One of the relative newcomers to the Dublin craft scene - great to see it in the historically shite-beer wasteland that is Temple Bar. Decent line up of taps with usually 7 or 8 Irish craft beers pouring as well as a handful of international offerings (BrewDog, Chimay Tripel, Harviestoun etc). All the usual macro crap too. Recently they’ve installed a beer engine and usually have some Irish on cask, which is good to see. Pints are c.15% more expensive than elsewhere in the city due to the busy tourist-flooded location. Bottle range is pretty extensive (plenty of US bottles, full range of Nogne O, and a decent line up of Belgians), but also very pricey. Pretty cozy atmosphere; lovely big window - great for people watching with your pint. Haven’t tried the food, but it’s mid-priced and hasn’t exactly look too appetizing when I’ve seen others eating in there - who knows though! Live music on a nightly basis - not bad musicians but can be very loud. In all, a nice little boozer in a very handy location.

What a surprise! This place has been around for years but only recently has started to serve craft beer. Lots of taps, 3 or 4 guest rotating ones and cask ale too. Food is good too. The prices are a little on the high side but this is Temple Bar and is to be expected. The staff seem to be very knowledgeable about beer and are very eager to chat about it too. Live music each night, a good traditional looking pub too. Becoming one of my favourite places in Dublin for sure. Oh - free wifi too and there’s rooms upstairs!
