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.

I went here new years eve, it was very busy however the service did not slip. The staff were very friendly and the food was amazing! I got chicken fajitas and the portion was extremely generous. it cost about 14Euro. we also got the chocolate brownie for dessert and a glass of wine and a pint of Heineken! the whole lot together cost around 50Euro including tip. i would definitely recommend this place!! The atmosphere is fantastic and both my friend and I were happy the entire night.

The Porterhouse, is on a side street, we found by mistake. We looked in and the place was hopping so we sat down for dinner.
My husband had the special for 25.00 Euros this included an choice of appetizer, main course, dessert and a glass of wine. The portions are large so go hungry. The food was great. Like most places they have night time entertainment. Their hours are 12:30 pm - Till late... seven days a week.

Another cracking restaurant/pub in Kerry! I thought portions might just be big to please weary travellers but it was actually really tasty, so much so that a starter and a main had my reaching to open my belt! No pud! Unheard of!
What we did have was lovely though and the service was flawless, courteous and very welcoming, will hopefully return in the not to distant future!

Enjoyed our dinner at the port house. It was recommended at our b&b. we did the 3 course dinner. I had chicken fajitas and nachos and my wife had the 6oz steak and mushroom soup. Food and atmosphere were very good. Live music started at 8:30 but we were a little early.

We had a meal here on our trip and it was very nice. The fish and chips was spectacular, really well cooked and a huge portion. The fajitas were very nice too and the service was excellent.The menu provided nice choices. The food wasnt overly expensive but it wasnt cheap either. Two meals and two starters came to about 60 euro. Would recommend it to a friend.
