Went on an evening with my partner. Was really crowded could barely walk through the bar, so get there early if you want to sit down and have drinks. Live music was playing but so crowded it was difficult to relax and listen vibrantly moving out of people's way and fighting for space. Ordered a half pint of Guinness and an Irish coffee for my partner and was shocked by how expensive it was. The Irish coffee cost just under €11 and my glass of Guinness €4. Bar looks fantastic but definitely overpriced and too crowded if you don't get there early and claim your spot.

Catering for typical tourist. Inflated prices.

Better places to experience Ireland. Overcrouded on weekends, won’t go again.

Temple Bar is a must see in Dublin. Music abounds in most pubs. The night lights alone are worthy of a visit.

Dirty, noisy and crowed with drunks. The only area we visited in Dublin where I kept a look out for potential petty crime. For the young drinking set... nothing classy about it. Have a look if you must, and then get out!
