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.

Served us at 10:00 pm. Great fish and chips. Friendly staff. Live Irish folk singer. Real pub feel but clean and bright.

Ahh the moment you enter this place you get full of energy.. that’s what happened with us.. first we went to bar to have ciders which are always good while enjoying the live music.. then we went to the table and ordered our food! Though the best one was tagliatelle pasta which was perfect to the taste buds!

Checked out several places in downtown area. Our group of six were quickly seated and our waitress quickly took our drink and dinner order. Most of us had the porterhouse steak sandwich which cooked perfectly and very tender. My wife had the bun-less turkey burger which she thoroughly enjoyed. One of the best dinners on our trip so far! Large portions - you may want to share!

During our recent two week visit to Ireland, mostly in the West-Southwest, Killarney was the liveliest town, with lots of people on the streets, great shopping, and actual music. The restaurant is quite lovely, well decorated, and the service excellent, even though our group was a little demanding. The food was delicious, with the meat perfectly cooked, the brown bread excellent, and the vegetables well prepared. Even though beef in Ireland is generally grass fed, it was still tender. Lively music added to the atmosphere. And, a bonus, my cell phone actually worked in the restaurant via wifi, so I was able to make several important calls back to the US while there. Parking can be difficult when Killarney is busy, so be sure to use the public lot when you first come into town--don't try to find street parking in some of the narrow alleys or you may get stuck. I would also recommend reservations for this restaurant since it is quite popular.
