If you are into your craft beers, from ALL OVER THE WORLD, then the Porterhouse Central / Temple Bar is the best place to go! I drink and eat here a lot, their food - although a little pricey, but reasonable, it is definitely worth a trip inside!

Great live music, seems to be the happening place...service was poor.
Fair bar prices and good drinks, if you can get the bar attendant's attention.

Popped in on recommendation to try the Oyster Stout and really enjoyed the place. Friendly bar staff, good atmosphere and excellent beer.

A little pricey but I think that's just Dublin for you!

Worth picking up the beer menu as it shows which drink is on special offer each day so you can a good pint for 4 Euro.

Would definitely head back next time I'm over there.
