garthicus  (61) Dublin, Ireland | October 14, 2013
A once leader of the craft beer scene in Ireland, The Porterhouse has fallen massively from grace, an okay tap line up and very average (to below average) food, the interior has seen better days and the staff no longer seem to care or have knowledge about what they are serving (in fairness, a couple of them still do). Their own beers are now very middle of the road at best. A shame.

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. It’s 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.

Large range of their own beers on tap and a nice selection of bottles, especially Belgians. Nothing rare.

Opposite the street of mine hotel. All their own brewed beers and much from other breweries beers too. Pub with more levels and can be crowed. so go upstairs maybe less crowded there.

This is a pretty incredible brew pub. If you find yourself in Dublin it is well worth the visit.

Located just around the corner from the Temple Bar. Very large with several areas for dining and drinking among a few levels. Can be crowded. Good selection of Porterhouse brews and the apps I sampled were quite good compared to most Irish food.

I wide selection of their own beers as well as international bottles. Great atmosphere and very nice interior. Gets very crowded early in the evenings.

Wow a tip top bar. Clean nice and full of both the Porterhouse beers and ones from all over the world. A top beer selection with beers from everywhere. They had more German Hefe Weizens than 98% of the German bars have. And that just Hefe’s. Five Weizen Bocks. Local beers without an end. Food and service are both very good. Thumbs up!!

Best creftbeer place in Temple Bar and probably in Dublin (although time did not allow me to get to Kavanagh’s). I love the multiple levels and all the nooks and crannies. Great live music was playing when I was there. The beer selkection is the best I found in Ireland...N. or S. The best part though was the might be redundant to say how friendly the Irish people are...but if it was somehow possible...they were even friendlier here than at any other bar I visited in Ireland. There is definitely an appreciation for craftbeers in The Porterhouse I did not find elsewhere in Ireland as the craftbeer culture seems like it is still catching up to England & Scotland. The Porterhouse is worth a special visit...and repeat ones after that.
