Busker’s Bar is a live music venue located on the eastern fringe of Temple Bar and just a stone’s throw from O’Connell Bridge and Grafton Street. As well as the main entrance, the Temple Bar hotel also has direct access into the bar so is perfect as a starting point if staying in the hotel.
Aimed at the younger market, Buskers has a contemporary feel to it with exposed bricks, comfy leather sofas and numerous big screen TVs for sporting events. A large island bar dominates the centre of the bar and there are numerous spots to get away from action.
Buskers is well known as a live music venue with a mix of both modern and traditional music being played 7 nights a week. When I visit don a Thursday night a trio were playing a mix traditional Irish songs.
Only keg beers are available at Buskers which seemed to be a theme in some of the pubs along Temple Bar. Unfortunately only large macro beers are available such as Guinness, Smithwicks, Kilkenny and lagers such as Heineken and Carlsberg.
If you’d rather try something different, Buskers has its own dedicated cocktail bar where groups of people can take part in cocktail making lessons.

I was able to visit and review this pub thanks to Stena Line, Discover Ireland and Paddy Wagon Tours who organised a trip as part of The Gathering, a year long series of events and festivals to celebrate Irish culture, history and genealogy. Their involvement had no bearing on the review.
