Having first visited the Porterhouse more then a few years ago on my first visit to Ireland, I started to wonder if I was making it out to be grander then it was; when I told people stories of the place, was the beer really that good or was I not accustomed to craft beer? Was there really three floors... More

The spirit, the music, the "Irishness" of this bar was very special. Three floors of drinks, conversation, and sound make this a very special destination.

We went here on the recommendation of our hostel for inexpensive food and beer. They were played the Football game which was great and then they did really fun music trivia. Pint special of the day was delicious and only €4. My burger was a bit overcooked but the size and toppings made up for it. Good if you want... More

The food was ok, but the beers were great. We got one beer each one and loved it. After that we realize what the sample tray was, and we had to order, great option so you can try three different beers, really better than I expected. The service was perfect, everything was fast but with all the attention we needed.... More

Went here twice while in Dublin with my friends. The food is yummy and the oysters are massive and yummy. The second visit they didn't have any oysters left :( so had the pot of muscles which were also very nice. The portions of food are really very big and well worth the money (which we thought to be reasonable)... More
