A great atmosphere in this joint. Not the best selection of beer, but when it comes to whisky its pure awesomeness.

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

Dispite the crowd, it was a nice place to grab a beer and listen to some local musicians. It’s not really a place to hang out all night at though.

i visited this place twice last week. not sure why. it is really crowded, much more so than some of the other bars in the area. the beer selection is pretty much the same as all the other dublin public houses i visited. drank a number of guinesses here with old friends, and some new friends visiting from detroit, who mocked me for my chicago bears t-shirt.

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!

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.

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.

This is probably the best place to have a beer in the Temple Bar district in Dublin. It is crowded as you’d expect for the area but the place is huge and you’re sure to find someplace to sit. I ditto everything GlobalVillager said in his comments below. If you’re in Temple Bar, you simply must go to THE Temple Bar.
