The Temple Bar

The Temple Bar is a historic pub smack dab in the middle of Dublin’s thriving nightlife district, Temple Bar. As much an institution as the area from which it gained its name, The Temple Bar pub offers beautiful surroundings of a traditional Irish pub complete with wooden panels and seats, mosaics, paintings and historic photographs. More than 450 varieties of Irish, Scottish and other whiskies are stocked, while the foods offered range from delicious fresh caught local oysters, scrumptious sandwiches, and cheese plates.

Guinness is the commonest compliment to the food on offer at the Temple Bar pub, which has for 160 years hosted people in Dublin living locally or visiting from places all around the world. The atmosphere, food and drinks selection is complimented by live entertainment every night from local Irish musicians, making the atmosphere lively, convivial and quintessentially Irish. With the city centre and all its sights and sounds quite literally at the doorstep, it’s scarcely any wonder this pub consistently attracts so many people.
