The Temple Bar home of this brewhouse is the most central of its various outlets and is located on the corner a block after the riverfront. Itís decor adheres to that of most of the other bars with its predominantly dark wood design, decor and furniture. A very full range of Porterhouse beers exist here along with an excellent bottle selection behind the bar. Packed and busy all the time but offers some craft beer away from the standard selections most bars have. Hefty prices.

First visited here in the summer of 1998 on the reccomendation of a non beer geek cousin of mine who lived in Dublin at the time. Have been back a number of times since, most recently Aug í11.
Back in the day Messrs Maguire and here were the only places to get a beer in Dublin that wasnít Guinness or mainstream lager so it was a breath of fresh air!
Split level pub with lots of glass, tiles and copper, bars on a few levels.
Always crowded of an evening - donít expect to get a seat if you show up after 5pm!
Service is OK and copes with the crowds, a little more local/office types than tourists due to it being on the far end of Temple Bar, but yo do still get a fair smattering of the latter.
Range is Porterhouse plus 100 or so bottles.
Worth stopping by on a visit to Dublin.

Temple Bar location is convenient. Large enough that even when crowded itís not bad. Better than expected, really, the service was friendly each time we were there and the stout range is excellent (Wrasslers and Oyster are both yum). A persistent craving for those kept us coming back again and again. For what it is, itís really not a bad place to go drinking and you probably wonít find a better stout range in the city.

Visited in November 2000. Donít really remember too much about it ... it was crowded and HUGE. <<Revisited in 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.>>

Best beer in Ireland, by my estimation (although I didnít try the lagers. The stouts and barley wine were great). They had a whole lot of beer from around the world, but I just drank their beers. THE place to go in Dublin, I guess.

In Dublinís Temple bar district, but there are others in the UK. Three levels of seating. Wait staff was friendly but didnít know the beer all that well. The stuff brewed in house is quite good, with the oyster stout being the strangest and most interesting. Food was quite good, large portions, but there are better deals in the area. There is a large selection of bottles from around the world. Definitely worth checking out while in Dublin.

Food, ales, and good times. One in the party consumed enough good ale to slip off the bar stool. Staff was helpful and informative. Lots of nooks and crannies on multiple levels. Food is pretty good. It is the best place to repeat. Greatly entertaining.

Decent enough modern bar, their own beer is usually quite good. Good but not brilliant.

A huge place in several odd levels, wooden floors, dark wooden tables and benches, and a long bar a bit dysfunctional with too many punters, so it was a bit hard to get served when you werenít sitting in the bar. Medium busy just after lunchtime on a Wednesday. 11 of their own beers on tap as well as a couple of guestbrews, and then ofcourse (for The Porterhouse) a load of bottled beers. The service when you got it was OK, though they wrinkled their nose a bit at my wish for half pints.

I have a nasty feeling that the guys who wrote negative comments below were probably acting like dicks. Yes, I donít like my beer cold either, and I prefer the staff to be interested in the product that they sell, but if you stroll in like a ponce and start insulting what theyíre doing, which is what it sounds like you were doing, then youíll get what you deserve. I found the staff, with their limited knowledge, to be exceptionally friendly, co-operative, and patient, even when the place was packed. The local house brews range from the excellent (stouts) to the mediocre (ales) and alas bad (selective amnesia, I forget which one, but it was a lager and sucked). Great live music. Great vibe. Just pull the broomstick out of your arse, míkay.
