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.

Tipico pub in stile irish. In piena temple bar, facile da trovare sempre pieno di gente. Musica tipica di sera, un must per il turista.

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.

(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.

Es uno de los pubs más famosos de Dublín. La mayoría de los clientes son turistas. La variedad de cervezas es escasa. Pero siempre está lleno y puedes escuchar música tradicional irlandesa en directo.

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.

Famous bar, so I had to visit it while I was in Dublin. And though there’s a nice atmosphere, it’s nothing really special. The place is packed every night, so a quiet conversation or getting a beer is hard to do. Great to tell I’ve been here. But, been there, done that. Temple bar? Check! If I will ever go to Dublin again, I would try to find the real Irish pubs. This is a tourist pub, which resembles to most of the European pubs.

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