I stopped for dinner one night while walking past and knew of the Porterhouse from pre-trip planning and while the selection of beer was impressive while the food was less so. I wound up dining alone and found a top floor table under a stairwell with my back to the room that while less than ideal was okay. The wait... More

Guinness beef stew was more like a chunks of beef and veggies floating in bowl of warm water. meat pie was burnt around the edges, and the veggies from the chicken were horribly undercooked. only reason I gave the place 3 stars was because they at least had a decent beer menu.. too bad their own micro-brew isn't among the...

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!
