Amazing beer!

The beers are really amazing. I think the sample is worth, you can try several ones. The Irish Steak is great as well. It's a nice place!

a Traditional Irish pub, it was originally a brewery, you can see that from the remaing pieces of equippment. They sell their own beers. Good food and entertainment. The different levels and the interior design make this pub very cosy even if big.

Located just across the street from Trinity College. Traffic can be a bit tricky with the construction ongoing. For lunch we both ordered Fish & Chips figuring we couldn't go wrong. And, we were right. Service was quick & good. The place was crowded.

Came here to have a few pints. They have a wide selection of beers, and the Porterhouse's own beers are very good. We also got the cheese board, which came with several types of Irish cheese, cured meats, nuts, and honey, which was really tasty. Live music and nice atmosphere as well.

Really nice place, it have a few storages and it's old and cosy. A lot of beers, I think more than 100. Food is okay, not the best but for a bar good.

Large variety of beer, nice, authentic ambience, but service and food doesn't match this, unfortunately.

It's a huge space, busy and loud of course. Bar food but well prepared. We tried to burger, wings and the steak salad, all good.

We visited in November 2014 and after a little sightseeing, we thoroughly enjoyed trying a few beers here. This small chain offers an outstanding array of craft beers and you are able to order a paddle of smaller measures of beer to try a few, which was excellent. We also had food here, which was good too. The place is... More

There's a huge array of craft beers on offer here; draft and bottles, some brewed by the company and guest ones too. My recommendation is that you try the Oyster Stout, you won't be disappointed!
