If you like beer, do not miss this spot! Stuff from all over the world on tab and in coolers. We went back a couple of times.

Its a great place, the décor is lovely, the myriad of rooms, stairs and nooks make this a great place to explore. The beer is local and home brewed, always a plus and the food, we had a burger, was filling. Overall, a good experience. Well worth. I would say, slightly overprices, as it is Ireland and in the touristy... More

If you are like my husband and prefer more of the gourmet beer rather than Guinness, then Porterhouse is worth visiting. The bartender was really knowledgeable and fun to talk to. We did have lunch there too. The food was just regular bar food, nothing exciting. Go there for the beer not food.

For beer-heads this is the holy grail. Me and my friends all ate bbq and loved it, nice and salty along with the beers. The staff serving were pretty stressed because of a full house, but that didn't bother us. We got surprised with some irish music as well.

We didn't eat here, but went for Drinks. I had a cocktail, but its not really the place for cocktails so quickly switched to beers! The Porterhouse Kolsch was really nice, so many beers to choose from! Listened to a band on a Saturday night until 2am, played 70's rock and it was great. Packed inside, we were lucky to... More

We came here for lunch and to get away from the crowds at the actual Temple Bar. The bar and restaurant are great and has the kind of authenticity one would hope to see in the Temple Bar area. There is a large beer selection but I can't say any of the beers they actually brew were that good in... More

Really enjoyed the selection on the menu and the beers were great. Specifically recommend the Plain Porter. The interior is quite cozy and nice, also.

If you love craft beer, take a detour to find this spot. Like all craft-beer joints, prices are about 6 euros per pint. Bar scene with nice music too.
