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.

Donít like this location as much as the Temple Bar one, the vibe is way worse, bordering on bad. Itís got a frat house immature idiot crowd and unpleasant atmosphere that makes me wanna get out fast. At the same time, the beer is great so if youíre in the neighborhood and are thirsty for something tasty then itís there and Iím thankful for that. And itís self-serve, so thatís nice and easy.

(Visited 11/2012): Porterhouse Central is on Nassau in the Temple Bar area near Trinity College.

The interior features a long bar along the right side and table seating throughout the rest of the space. Hanging flags and TVs in the bar area, plus some hanging boards explaining different beer ingredients.

Porterhouse features a pretty extensive beer list. There are around 8-10 Porterhouse brews on draught, including Red Ale, Temple Brau, An BrainblŠsta, XXXX Stout, Chiller and Plain Porter on our visit. All of the beers are above average. As for bottles there are around 100 from all over, as well as the beers that Porterhouse bottles, like Celebration Stout.

Service at the bar on our visit was good. The bartender was familiar with all the Porterhouse beers and was friendly and efficient during our stay. They were playing American football on TV too which was a pleasant surprise.

Food at Porterhouse is pretty good. We shared a gigantic plate of nachos and it was tasty.

Overall I would put Porterhouse at the top of the list of places to visit in Dublin.

September 2009 and discovered they now have two locations. Great selection of house beers (at least 7-9). Crowded as hell at any time of day, which is testimony enough. Food is good.

Visited here just the once in April í09. Prefer the original venue on Parliament st tbh. This place, whilst carrying a pretty similar if perhaps slightly less extensive range, comes over as more of a íPorterhouse Lightí when compared to the original. More studenty/dive bar, stripped down and spartan in terms of decoration - I remember the wooden floor being a little sticky in places! Service was adequate. Wouldnít go out of my way for this one but would do for a pint or two if your hotel was nearby as mine was.

In a beer desert, this is a real find - while their selection would not have raised any eyebrows in other cities, the Porterhouse bars are the place to go in Dublin. A range of their own beers on tap, and quite a few imports. Check if there are seasonal brews available, or the Celebration Stout. Live music, but it is a large room, so the sound level was just fine.

Pretty similar to the other location. I only stopped by here because the other location was out of the Pale Ale and I wanted to try it. Nice place.

Crowded city centre pub - no sitting space, and little room to stand on a Thursday evening. Excellent Porterhouse beers as expected.

I like places like this. Great atmosphere, friendly people. Not too crowded however, unlike the other Porterhouse in Dublin. Large range of beers available both on tap and bottled. Staff was very friendly and although young girls had some knowledge about the beers.

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
