Amazing food and drink! Best we've had in Dublin. Great choice of vegetarian food too which is always a struggle for me when I go away. Lively but relaxed atmosphere and great music. Would definitely recommend!

This place has been around for a while at the end or start of Temple Bar depending on which way your coming at it from. As a local I'd tend to say the end. It's not as manic or frenzied as the other end of Temple Bar , thank God. No way near as many idiots as the other end.... More

Authentic Irish Music by Sliotar, fun, great craft beers. Recommend not asking for a Guinness here (as a friend did) as they only have (delicious) craft beers.

Had a very nice burger here, service was alright. The place looks very nice and they have an amazing range of beers from all over the world. Not expensive at all!

The service, food and beer selection was wonderful! We arrived at 6 and enjoyed a quiet eating area before things got too loud. My husband had the lamb shank and said it was wonderful - plus the beer selection was impressive!

Lots of really select stouts and porters on offer. We went on a Monday at lunch time, the Staff are really nice and quick to serve your pints right to the table. We didn't war but people near us really enjoyed their food. Very clean and friendly

We've been here twice in our short holiday in Dublin and love it! They craft their own beer, which are very good! You can order a taste tray for 6 euro's with three different beers. The food is good and big portions. In the weekend there's live music but without that it's a great pub too for weekdays.

Dingle is part of porterhouse, but not directly listed. so here is my review. it's small and cosy and directly connects to the pub. there is a large window when you enter to the left with all kinds of whiskeys. I am a bourbon man, but hey, I was in for a surprise. we took the chairs on the bar.... More
