Description: We opened "The Porterhouse Gastropub" in the height of the recession in December 2011, year on year business has continued to grow. We pride ourselves in serving good pub grub accompanied with live music. We have a full bar, which is known to be a lively spot on the weekends. We offer live music 7 nights a week - all year round. If you are looking for a quiet fine dining meal in a restaurant environment, we aren't the place for you.

We had a good meal there, portions are generous, wine list is fair, service is decent and we liked the live music for the ambiance. On the improvable side, tables are a bit packed and light is scarce.

It wasn't too crowded when we went there and the food was pretty good. We had lamb, burgers, and fish & chip. I had the fish & chip and it was pretty good. Not greasy at all. They gave you a good size portion and of course, it all goes down really good with a pint!!
I would recommend this place in Killarney if you want to go to 'other than a pub'.

Husband said his steak was tasteless. Mine was average.Poor value for the quality of food. Service was great despite being busy. Disappointing after reading great reviews.

We were are party of 7 going for a causal dinner
4 of us had the fillet steak, 1 a burger, 1 the cajun salmon, 1 the fajitas. We all agreed it was one of the best meals we have had in a long time. Food was fantastic quality, came in good time, was piping hot, excellent portions, and cooked exactly to our wishes. To top it all off the staff were friendly and our waitress was very attentive without being intrusive.
Would defiantly recommend, and will be back again. This place in not cheap pub grub, but its defiantly not expensive, it quality food served at a good price.....dont miss out if in Killarney!

Went here on a recommendation, I would have often walked past it. We were greeted with very pleseant staff and manager, got a table in short order, 7 of us, orders were taken promptly, and food delivered shortly after. The starter was very tasty, but the main course, the cajun salmon, was exceptional. All topped off with a decadent dessert. Highly rated, can't wait to go back there.
