Ok I am also a tourist. But this place was a bit to busy and way to many tourists.
Decent beer selection, and not very knowledgable staff. He hardly understod english. And there where a lot of tourists there....trouble.
Surly ok place on a less busy day and with some live music. Will surely go there again.

Great location. Staff was good enough and they have around 10 of their own beers on tap which rotate during each season or so. Prices are average for the city and the food was good. Nothing spectacular, but I enjoyed it.

Located near Trinity College, this bar seemed to have a bit of everything. Nice selection of Porterhouse beers on tap along with a few American beers on tap. Bottle selection seemed very good. Service was friendly and prices seemed reasonable. Worth a fisit for sure.

Busy but not as packed as I expected for central Dublin on a Saturday afternoon. Just about all current Porterhouse beers available draught, I think. Had a bit of an American feel with lots of men sitting at the long bar watching rugby ... and the toilets are signed as restrooms (sign is directly above gents, ladies is to the left, could be dangerous after too many beers (& while Iím on toilets, the sinks are high, so short ladies may well get an unpleasant wet belly while leaning in to wash hands)). Staff were friendly & efficient. Food sounded great, so was disappointed with pub-standard mediocrity. I much preferred the Brew Dock.

Visited on Sat afternoon. Huge pub. Rugby on TV. Great selection of beer with tasting tray available. Ä10 deposit may be payable on tasting paddle.
Lots of beer available plus a few guests and specials from Porterhouse. Definitely worth a stop

Similar to but not quite as good as Porterhouse Central. Slightly fewer guest taps and slightly more "sports bar" feel than the more pubby Templebar. Food also decent here and same wide range of Porterhouseís own stuff

Large traditional wooden pub just behind Trinity College and 3 minutes walk to Temple Bar area. It seems to be developed mainly across a single floor and not to have a live band performing, differently from many other pubs in the area. Food menu is varied and extensive enough to have everyone happy, going well beyond the basic burgers and bangers. We had a traditional Irish stew and a salad and both were reasonably priced (around EUR 11-13), large and very tasty. Beer selection is good in the sense that they stock a large variety of PH beers (around 10 Iíd say), including some seasonals like the RIS, the barley wine and the Kolsch. They also host some other Irish and British craft breweries. Service is prompt and prices reasonable. Itís not a place for ticks but itís very good for decent beer and good well priced food.

This Porterhouse is huge by Irish standards, and it can feel rather impersonal. I was very impressed with the beer selection with many nice beers from the US, but nothing outstanding.

Solid atmosphere for the football. Service was efficient for how busy it was. Selection is probably not quite as good as the other Porterhouse but still solid. A little pricey but expected that. Good place

On the South side of Trinity College and just a couple of doors along from the start of the pedestrianised shopping area of Grafton Street, this is a large pub owned by the Porterhouse brewhouse that runs deep into the building it is housed in. Itís typically Irish bar in style with a predominantly wooden decor, furniture and floor and itís an attractive place to eat or drink. Itís one of the better places to watch live sport as thereís plenty of screens and itís open plan so viewing is not an issue, thereís also screens behind the bar to service those that want to sit on the many bar stools along the lengthy bar. The bar itself includes an excellent selection, obviously including the brewers own range, and notable for not selling Guinness - a rarity in Dublin. Cask ales are served here too and the pumps are facing you as you walk in.
