We went to this place, as it was well known, but not in the middle of the crowds of the rest of Temple Bar. It is definitely a great bar, where you wont be cramped in by others.

We first came here in 1981 and loved it. It has hardly changed and why would anyone have messed with such a beautiful place, Great decor, atmosphere, Guiness, whisky and Irish Coffee. A perfect way to while away an hour or so.

Excellent service, bar staff, particularly Jenny and Sharon are two wonderful, talented, young girls; they would go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and enjoyed your experience- everyone else was fine

On a Friday night, most of the bars in Temple Bar are packed and noisy. The Palace is a nice change of pace. It's not boring in any way. It's just that, while the other bars tend to skew toward boisterous crowds, the Palace seems...More
