Temple Bar is a great destination when spending any time in Dublin. When I was visiting Dublin I was just there for a short weekend, and much of it was spent at the Temple Bar. It is in a great location, right in the middle of the Temple Bar district.
Outside on the weekends the streets are filled with street performers and other city goers. It is an area that is very friendly to tourists. The Temple Bar had live music which made the atmosphere unbeatable.
It was so relaxed, yet a wonderful place to go to! In addition to the great atmosphere, the staff was wonderful. The bartenders were very attentive serving everyone as quickly as possible on the very crowded weekend nights.
The drinks were not outrageously expensive, but it was a bit pricey. However, Dublin is also a very expensive city so that is to be expected.There is also a great hostel just up the street from the pub.
I would recommend this pub to anyone visiting the great city of Dublin looking for a fun night out, or just a drink to relax in the afternoon!
