Good place to go if you're looking for a night out! Try to go at Fridays to see the Suspects band, nice cover for many musics! You can also try many craft beers there!

Visited with a group of friends from work and loved the selection of really amazing beers, lots of unique offerings with some super flavours. The food is great too, chicken wings are a must order with tasty burgers too. It's not high end cuisine but the right selection of food to go along with the beers and other drinks on... More

So we are in Dublin with our children, aged 6 and 9. Dublin is quite a different experience with children ie: you can't spend all day in lovely Irish pubs drinking Guinness so this time we have actually done some sightseeing. However strolling around Temple Bar we saw a few people coming out of here with kids so we decided... More

Had a good lunch at The Porterhouse with some mates. A sound enough place that guarantees a fair meal and a quality pint. Can't go wrong with the Porterhouse experience

Great place to stop by in the Temple Bar area, came with family and we all had the buffalo wings which were amazing. Wasn't expecting to find great wings in Dublin but was pleasantly surprised.

Overall very good but so atmospheric that it was difficult to have a conversation! Very good beer brewed on the premises. Food was also very good (I had the chicken and ham pie). Service again very good, but on the downside the toilets could do with an overhaul. Live Irish music on ground floor (we were on first floor).
