This quickly turned into our go-to pub during our Dublin vacation. Clean, friendly, great beer selection and wonderful food. It was also very central to many other activities and attractions in the heart of Dublin.

If I hear one more bad rendition of Christy Moore's - Ride On - I will scream.... Dublin's Temple Bar is full of terrible cliches...but this place is an authentic gem. Proper Irish folk the night we where in (Banjo, Flute and Guitar - no amps...). Fantastic stuff very authentic. Although the Banjo player looked creepily like a black haired... More

Visited in the middle of the IPA beer festival and great choice of IPA beer with a friendly relaxed feel. Food looked good and atmosphere was typically relaxed.

What a gem of a place. Several floors of great interior, great friendly atmosphere, lots of exclusive beers (try the Plain Porter if you're tired of Guinness!) and of course good live music to back up the party feeling. We didn't try the food but it looked ok despite the place being really, really busy. A major plus to the... More

Good beer, good food and excellent staff. The place itself is nice and the outside seating area is just beautiful. We really liked the Porterhouse!

Porterhouse really is good. Lovely beer, fantastically fresh; excellent food which is a cut above regular pub grub; service was fine given how busy they were (Friday night); and a genuine pub with locals outnumbering tourists and a grand atmosphere (not Olde Irishe). And the live band, on the night we went, were decent. My wife described it as, "The... More

Every Irish person I know advised me to avoid the Temple Bar area unless I wanted to pay over the odds to get sprayed with beer from English stag parties. So I did, with one exception - Porterhouse. We went during the day for a late lunch, mainly to taste their Oyster Stout. It was delicious! I had Irish Stew... More
