On a flying visit to Dublin I had to try a pint of Guinness. It was superb. Lovely quaint traditional pub. Good friendly service and the whole pub was buzzing. Live music was about to begin as well. Food menu looked good too although we didn't eat.

We visited this pub our first night in Dublin. The Norseman is a quaint, traditional pub. My husband and I sat at the bar and received superb service from Becky who was tending. Live music too! Can't go wrong with this pub in Temple Bar!!

This is a very friendly bar with live music and a wide range of beers. Good night out and not quite as manic as other bars on Temple Bar. It's at the end of the run but still full of groups on stag or hen do's which is what the area really caters for

The pub has two stories, the upper one was empty, the lower one was the best. The service was nice, our waitress was helpful giving us good beer and food suggestions. The ambience of the place was cozy, with someone playing guitar and good music. The food also something recommendable !

Great location in Temple Bar and what I expected from a traditional Irish pub - wooden floors, little nooks to sit in, a great range of draught beers and of course top notch service. We arrived early evening to eat before the live music started. Both opted for the Norseman steak - brought out cooking on a sizzling skillet so...

The best meal I've had in Temple Bar so far! This was a deliciously smokey chicken dish. Live music, friendly and attentive service. Nothing to fault!! Not too crowded yet very popular. Central location is a bonus.

spent an evening and an afternoon in here, gets a bit crowded but has a great traditional atmosphere, some good singers singing a mixture of irish tunes and other hits and excellent selection of beers etc.

Popped in for a drink. Plenty of choice of beers but could do, in my view, with a cask ale or two to complement the line up. Service was prompt and cheerful. A friendly atmosphere in a great location.

We booked here on booking.com for 99 euros per night. It is bang in Temple Bar so close to all the nightlife etc. The room was very nice and modern which we didn't expect. Complete with hairdryer, touch lamps, comfy bed and such The bar staff are very friendly and the prices are about what you'd expect to pay in...
