My sister, her husband and mine stopped by this pub a couple of months ago, when they were visiting Dublin. We particularly wanted to take in some live Irish music, without staying out late to do so. We were fortunate, at 2.30 on a Sunday afternoon, to find TWO different acts, following each other with just 20 minutes or so in between. We had vocals and guitar, followed by vocals, guitar, accordion and flute. Toes were tapping, and a couple with a small girl were delighted, as were the rest of us, when she spontaneously started dancing to the music.
Sure, the drinks are probably a bit more than the average, but you're paying partly for the atmosphere in a pub like this. We were lucky to arrive early enough to get a table with bar stools. Others were standing waiting to pounce when, after a good hour and a half to two hours, we finally headed out. Would warmly recommend for live music at an early hour.

I visited this bar a few times while in Dublin. Its has a great atmosphere and is well worth a visit.
Try and go when they have some live music on and get into the spirit.

Worth stopping in for a pint, but the bar was very busy and more of a tourist stop more then a local pub.

Constantly busy, staff were great and really friendly. The live music in here was amazing!! There was a big storm when we were there and ended up staying in here early afternoon through the night was brilliant!

This place is a quirky little Irish bar in temple bar, which has live music and good atmosphere however on the down side the prices of drinks are extortionate where 2 drinks could set you back 16-18 euro depending on what time of day it was. There are many places with similar atmosphere with drinks at half the price.
