What a fantastic place! Great atmosphere. Lovely food (steak on a stone was delicious) and the Staff were so amazing. My friends and I visited Dublin for a joint birthday weekend. We stumbled across this place on our first night and enjoyed it so much we had to return on our last night before heading home where we had a...

We stayed for 3 nights at the Norseman. We picked here because it is right in the middle of temple bar but is a little bit cheaper than most of the other hotels. We weren't expecting that much but were pleasantly surprised. The room was well decorated and quite clean and bright. The bed was comfortable although being on wheels...

This place surprised me since I came in; the waiter welcomed us with a big smile and showed us to a table. Normally in a pub, you will go and place your order at the bar but the place was not full so he told us he would take our order at the table. He was so nice, giving us...

Nice Temple Bar pub - had drinks & food here - busy bar downstairs, restaurant upstairs. Good selection of beers, and good food - try the "Steak on a Stone" - not a cheap option, but worth it if you want to cook your own steak to perfection. Live music in the bar, which can be heard in the restaurant,...

this was a unique way to enjoy the temple bar area. The pub downstairs was great fun, super friendly. The room upstairs, was clean, and very comfortable. It was also very secure, and safe. Just a stones throw away from food, and the river. Just a good stretch of the legs to trinity college, wax museum, and ha' penny bridge....

There are a lot of pubs around Temple Bar to choose from. The Norseman is less noisy than many and while it has live music you can also sit and enjoy a pint and a chat with the music as background ariund the far side of the bar.

The bartender told us this was the case and we were not disappointed. Ideal for a quick stop warm up and they do food too! Highly recommended it as the staff were so friendly we even went back the next day.

we stopped in for a quick bite to eat and stayed because the live music was fabulous...Robin Hurt has a beautiful voice and it was a pleasure to listen. The food was okay, basic food with nothing to complain about other than it was plain and had little flavour. Go for the drinks and music.

It's a great pub, sometimes it gets crowded at night, but the drinks are good and the service is faster and good, but some drinks are expensive, I payed 3 euros for a coke. The music is good too! I'll come back. :)

Atmosphere was good when we arrived. Customer service was quite ok and bar's location at the Temple Bar area is just great. Live music and beer. What else can you ask for? You can also order food at the Norseman.
