The best pub in Temple Bar! Tourists seem to dash straight for 'The Temple Bar' when visiting Dublin, yes it's very photogenic and it's an iconic pub - but trust me, go to Quays! The live music is always 10 times better, the pints are about 1.5euro cheaper and the atmosphere is always electric! Possible my favourite pub EVER! Not just in Dublin!
Beat live music spot A great nights crack with great live bands, lovely staff and door staff that are so polite. Definitely worth a visit
Choosing a Pub in Temple Bar So many bars in Temple Bar area. How to choose? Mainly it was a matter of avoiding the ones that were too full to be able to get through the door, or pumping out music so loud we couldn't speak or which had large groups of stag do’s and Top-Deck tourists in bad Irish hats or Viking horns. We didn't exactly choose Quays Bar. Instead we just randomly peered through the doors of a few pubs and and when we saw that this one had two great Irish folk singers, a lively atmosphere, space at the bar and was nicely full without being crammed in like sardines, we stayed. Perfect! More
