We didn't enjoy it very well because the music was very loud and we had to shout to each other. If you are looking for a pub to pass the time talking to your friends, avoid it. Otherwise, it is a nice pub to visit and have a drink.

Temple bar gets SUPER busy and Fitz was a great place to chill and relax. Very large bar with lots of fun beers, live music and big TV screens to watch the games. Enjoyed this place.

Fitzsimons was located directly across the river from our hotel so we decided to visit the pub for dinner and it did not disappoint. The beer was cold, the food was awesome and our waitress Georgia was excellent!! We had the Beef & Guiness casserole as well as the Irish coddle. Both dishes were fabulous as was the beer selection.... More

Fitzsimons is a fun place to grab a meal, get drinks, watch live dancing, and listen to fun live music. The food is as good as anything else at Temple Bar, the service is as good as any of the other local joints, and the prices are about average for the neighborhood. The place is large and easy to find.
