Bit less then the regular Porter House. There were a few beers they didnít have. Service was bitt less as well. I prefer going to the Porterhouse, so go there and skip this place.

Nice, typical style bar. No problem with children in here if you are traveling with family. The usual porterhouse selections. Nothing else on draft, unless they are having some strange celebration of German beers. Didnít have the food at this one. But the beers were good, just like the other location we hit up. Good beer, decent atmosphere. For a bar.

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 this place while visiting Dublin. Finally getting around to rating it. Great selection bottled. Several Porterhouse brews on tap (most of which were pretty good). Pretty decent service for Dublin. Served up a pretty good Irish stew too. The place was not cheap, however. Roughly 6 Euro a pint/bottle. Granted, nowhere in Dublin is very cheap. Iíd certainly go back if I had the money though.

One of the highlights of my trip to Ireland was drinking Wasslers XXXX in Porterhouse Central. Nice relaxed atmosphere and good beer, what more could you want?

I enjoy the beers at The Porterhouse, but often find the staff to be insufferable. They have a very unwelcoming and hostile air about them and can be downright rude. I have had experiences there where I was actaully "talked down to" by a bartender when asking about their beers - as if EVERY customer who walks in the door is a complete ignoramus. People tell me itís a typical D4 condescention and maybe it is - I just find it downright revolting.
For the beers - they have the best beers brewed in Ireland that I have tasted to date. I particularly enjoy, the XXXX stout, Plain Porter and the firkin-drawn TSB. Whenever I go do Dublin, I make it a point to go to the Porterhouse.
For the food, except for the decent chicken wings, I am disapointed time and time again. Their burgers are obviously not hand-pressed or cooked to order - not to mention completely cremated beyond recognition. They have modeled the place and concept on the American Brew-Pub, but have forgotten one thing: American Brew-Pub food is high-quality and freshly made! Not to mention, they charge nearly Ä15 for a burger!
Usually, I go across to Zaytoon, the Iranian kebab joint and THEN drink at the Porterhouse - as I said I LOVE the beer. Shame about the food and service, though...

Decent sized bar with a good number of tables. Staff are decent if unexceptional, and I never had to wait long for a beer. Great selection of their both own beers on tap and a large number of bottles from elsewhere. Food was pretty good, but nothing to write home about. Music was loud for my taste and there are a number of TVs. Itís a good spot to go for a few pints and watch the football, and their beerís the best in Dublin.

Went there in the afternoon. Large bar nice interior, nothing special though. The staff didnít seem busy, even so they couldnít be bothered with questions about thier beers. Selection is good, theyíve got their on brews on tap plus a couple of German weissbiers if memory serves me right, and a nice selection of bottles especially from the UK. Didnít try out their food. Prices where as fair as any place in Dublin.

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.

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