First night of the very first visit to Dublin and Ireland for my sister and I, and we couldn't have picked a better pub to have dinner in. We were actually headed to another spot (that was recommended by our hotel) and happened to stop in a shop on the way. I asked the shop security guard if we were... More

We visited this bar a couple of times in a weekend. Great choice of bottled and draught beers, but remarkably, no Guinness!! They did have Plain Porter though. We also ate here on Monday afternoon. Food was tasty and pretty good value, and served quickly. While we were eating, some locals stuck up their guitars and banjos at the next... More

We really enjoyed ourselves here on our last night! I was craving a good ribeye, and also wanted a Pub that had a good choice of different IPA's and craft beer from the region. This is a great choice. I'd suggest it....centrally located outside the center of temple bar in an area that's a bit safer. Good service, fun time.

Saturday afternoon lunch, was disappointed that they don't serve sandwiches at lunchtime on a Saturday, so opted for the sharing platter and was not disappointed plenty there for the 3 of us with a good selection of chips, ribs, wings, sausages, garlic bread. Friendly staff and not too long wait on food, good selection of beers.

Superb range of beers. I've not eaten here but the menu looks mediocre. The pub atmosphere is excellent and the beer is superb. Very enticing place

After having dinner at the restaurant, I noticed this small attachment to it, called: The Dingle Whiskey Bar. It is a bar specializing in whiskeys. The decor is sober with accents of whiskey barrels as seats/tables. Perfect for the theme. The selection of whiskeys is amazing, featuring not only Irish whiskeys but whisky from many other countries, hand picked to... More

Worth a visit, but not out of the ordinary. No waiters so serve yourself at the bar. In Temple Bar area, so can have a drink and move to next place.

A realy good selection of different craft beers. Didn't eat here but really enjoyed the various beers they had. and the atmosphere as well. The pub is quite large with three or more floors. The atmosphere was great and lively but without the manic ambience you usually get visiting Temple Bar. Really enjoyable experience.

Great pub vibe... loads of beers (and spirits and wines), good food menu, friendly staff and all with the Irish charm you would hope for... Great pulled pork nachos too! 😃

As the headline is suggesting I have very mixed feelings about The Porterhouse. First of all, I really like coming here for the one or the other pint. They have an amazing selection of beers from around the world (also a great number of Irish beers). It's a nice place to sit and have a chat. However I must admit... More
