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.
Well, it’s a tourist place in probably the nexus of tourism. Nothing particularly exciting about the beer selection, but there’s nothing intrinsically bad about spending a few hours kicking back and relaxing here as a tourist.
The Temple Bar is a a very popular photo motive. This pub offers what tourists expect considering "typical" Irish pub atmosphere. Your ears will probably get a fiddle overload and the feet may start doing some riverdance moves. Inside it is divided into three bars, several rooms and a beergarden. Often live music. Beers from Carrig on tap and in bottles. A bit more expensive as all bars in the Temple Bar area. A must visit for tourists, but a beer geek won’t stay long. (Visited February 16th 2016)
