We visited this pub on a Saturday afternoon and didn't leave for 3 hours. Super cozy with tons of beers on tap, and honestly the best muscles we've ever tasted. Just a great place to lounge and enjoy conversation, watch a little EPL, and drink...More

Always rammed, quick service, no messing around from the lads behind the bar. Good buzz about the place and it is slap bang in the middle of the city. A good place to hang out of a night.

Draft Guinness beer, soft Irish meat pie and lots of friendly people. This gem is hidden on Dame Lane in the southern part of Temple Bar. Simple menu with delicious Guinnes bread and tuna sandwiches. Check it out - you won't regret.

Hidden down a little alley - look for the mosaic on the main road to point you in the right direction. Long and thin inside - bar and staff fantastic - as is the food. Definitely worth seeking out. The decor is authentic and it...More

They are very efficient and manage to get food and drink to people pretty quickly. Dont expect a hostess and a wait list. You go in and find yourself a seat. Someone will find you and take your order.
