We arrived late because of a flight delay, so our experience may not be typical. The rooms are above a really active pub/restaurant in the main nightlife district in Dublin, and you have to check in at the bar to get keys, sign in, etc. so it was odd to show up at midnight to a packed establishment and have...

Really enjoyed the bar staff as the worked to ensure we had fresh pints and great window seats to look at the passing tourist. Very friendly great place to gather and easy to find. Will go back the next time in Dublin

I spent a week in Dublin and visited this pub a few too many times :-) The beers were great, and not too expensive for temple bar, the food and music were excellent, but by far the best thing about this pub are the wonderful staff. You go in a stranger, and leave feeling like you've made a new bunch...

Dropped in on a random weekday afternoon. As the part in town it is i didn't expect a pint of Guinness for under a fiver. However it was 5.80. For that it would want to be a decedent pint of Guinness. It wasn't. The pub itself is nice and the food menu looked nice. Friendly barman

First time of visiting Dublin and this was the first pub we came to. Staff really friendly and helpful. Visited again a few days later and live music was on. Fab! The pub itself is a bit dark inside...plenty of seating.....average prices for Dublin.

Had a lovely stay at The Norseman. The staff were all really friendly. Our room was nice. Have the Steak it's to die for. The best I've ever tasted. The live entertainment was excellent. Request them to sing Jedwood, Bewitched & Green Day :) Loved it & would go there again.

Great Craic with live music the guy with the guitar was,a great singer!!! Beer a little pricey but that is usual for city centre. Friendly staff and accommodating to families. Nice buzz in the bar with shoppers and tourists.

Just back from a short visit to Dublin and of course spent our fare share of time in the temple bar area! All the pubs are lovely but this one stood out from the crowd. Wide selection of drinks, food served until late, great staff and fantastic local singers every night. The Guinness is spot on and the atmosphere is...

We started out at another restaurant and it seemed empty, so we snuck out to find another place and ended up at The Norseman! The food was fabulous! The music is actually what drew us in, but the food did not disappoint!

Loved this spot. The music drew us in. Great drink. Ordered mussels as I have to eat gluten free and this was the only item. Best mussels ever!! Yumm. So happy we stopped here. My husband has the chicken salad and it too was awesome!!
