We try to visit the Palace Bar whenever we are in Dublin. Traditional pub at the edge of Temple Bar with a 'local' clientele and a number of journalists. Good atmosphere! Recommended.

What a wonderful local pub. Some tourists but also plenty of locals. Great beers and whiskeys. Lovely seating area which helps to invite visiting between tables and chairs. A gem of a place!

Coffee was instant. Juice was britvic. The barman was quick, friendly and efficient. He was able to recite his inventory of sandwiches, from which you could choose. Requests outside of his repertoire were not entertained. Case in point, he had a cheese and onion sandwich...More

I love to pop into this place every few months for a nice Guinness. We were lucky enough to get a seat last Friday after work and had a lovely hour chatting and soaking up the atmosphere over a great pint of Guinness.
