Unbelievable selection of local and international beers. I won't mention the whiskeys and cocktails as it would take two lifetimes to get threw all the beers. 👍🏼👍🏼

I recently visited this bar with friends. It has four floors, so something for everybody. There are multiple bars so you never have to wait long to be served. There is an extensive drinks list including fantastic cocktails!! On the second floor there is a live band (they were fantastic the night we went) playing popular hits. The smoking area... More

Dublin is overwhelming when trying to pick a pub so we opted for Porterhouse based on a tour guide recommendation. We arrived just in time to hear about 30 minutes of a great Irish band. The next set was an Indy Rock band (great cover of Amy Winehouse "Back to Black") that was really enjoyable but check with the bar... More

My favourite pub in all of Dublin , when I'm in town for whatever reason this pub is always my first choice. The special is always worth a try (and great value) and then on to the brain blasta, if you can handle the 7% vol. The staff are friendly and helpful. If your normal beer is not here they'll...

Porterhouse has served us, what we think, the best nachoes in the world! Our last visit was in 2014. We came back to Dublin, and was so exited, Porterhouse was our first stop when we arrived. The beer was great, as always! But the nachoes... Did you get a new chef? 'Cause the nachoes was a disaster! Please change them... More
