(Visited 11/2012): The Temple Bar is located in the touristy Temple Bar area on Temple Bar. Temple Bar!

Inside is a cozy front bar. Dark wood and red color motif, with lots of framed art and photos on the walls.

The beer selection is pretty average. Guinness, Smithwick’s, Carrig and other Irish beers along those lines primarily.

Service at the bar is pretty good considering the constant crowds.

We did not have any food on our visit.

All in all this place isn’t really worth visiting just for the beer, but between the atmosphere and regular live music they put on it may be worth checking out for Dublin visitors.

Not sure how this place even got on ratebeer. Sure it is an old place like every other pub in Dublin claims to be. I stayed in a hostel next door and at night this is an example of dive bar mixed in with your load of ’traditional’ Irish bands like every other bar in Dublin does every single night of the week. The beers are un-interesting at best, crowded like a sardine can with over priced beers. This place is jam packed all day long with a crowd of tourist and a noise level that goes crescendo has the night goes on. Not a place worth being on this site; bud, coors, carlsberg, guinness, heineken and other pricey lagers with a pint price that goes up once 11pm. No service to speak of since at times it is insane to even make one’s way to order a pint; 5€60. You will get nothing in this bar that other bars in the Temple Bar area do not offer. A tourist bar at best. Only thing that I enjoyed there was the music, and it gets so loud that you’ll be glad to go outside.

Located in the center of Dublin, known as the famous Temple Bar (street). Lots of bars. Old and very touristy. Nothing interesting for beer geeks. In the evening it gets really crowded. Lots of live music. Very touristy and expensive, but it has it’s charm. There are way better places in Dublin though!

This is a nice pub, charming, great ambiance. Maybe packed with tourists during high season, but definitively a must for anyone visiting Dublin. Beer selection is quite average, but this is not the cause you go there.

visited on our trip to Dublin, small bar with live folk music and a lively tourist crowd. Mostly just Guinness and ciders available here. More for the atmosphere than the beer.

This is a place to go out at night. Not to taste beers, but to have fun and enjoy yourself. Great atmosphere with a live band playing Molly Malone :p

The Temple Bar is one of THE bars in the Temple Bar-"district". Therefore it is very touristy and crowded during the weekends, but when you get the chance, go there during the week for a visit. The interior is really cozy and comfy with warm earth tones and dark furniture. Beer selection is average, but it is more about the flair being there. Nice spot but some downpoints because of all the tourists.

Touristy in general, though sunday around noon when most tourists are still abating their hangovers you get some nice wee bands jamming away. Ok also touristy but with way less tourists around... so nice with a soothing good pint. During packed times beer can be not spot on. Prices again touristy. Service is ok.
