There is a dearth of craft beer destinations in Ireland, so if you’ve been in one Irish pub you’ve probably been in most of them. That’s what makes it so easy to clone one - get the same six basic tap handles, a bit of wood paneling and you’re good to go. Except for a few places like The Porterhouse. This is the real deal with beer you won’t find elsewhere. Great entrainment on two stages at different levels, great food, friendly service. I’m highly impressed.

Very much a standout in what I described to a friend as ’not really a great "beer" city, but an awesome "drinking" city’. Multiple, winding levels, crowded and buzzing (visited on a Thursday between Xmas and New years), friendly folks on both sides of the bar, a pretty lengthy selection of beers, all of which I sampled were very good. Ambiance was great, though certainly not a ’traditional’ pub for Dublin. In my 3-4 hours there, at least half a dozen folks attempted to order a guiness and the barman very patiently and effectively explained what they do and the beers they make. Really enjoyed it and would visit again.

Since the selection at the great majority of Irish pubs is very limited, the Porterhouse really stands out as a destination for beer lovers in Dublin. The Porterhouse brews superior stouts and has many foreign beers available. The food was easily the best we had in any pub, and that the music was trad was a bonus.

Great brewpub in Dublin. Plenty of Porterhouse beers on draught, many were dark and tasty. This was our favourite pub in Dublin. Well worth a look!

Good beer, that they make. Good food. Great atmosphere. Excellent service. We enjoyed a nice lunch and several pints here. Really nothing to complain about.

Decent enough old spot, this. it’s homely enough but with enough banter to give the place an atmosphere. Full of office workers on their breaks, though. Still, I took a bird there for a date and it was nice... got the shift ;)

Very nice pub, definitely my favourite in the Temple Bar area. This was a safe haven from the touristy, overcrowded bars in the area. Delicios Porterhouse beer on tap and some guest beers. Wide selection of bottles, but not the most exciting selection in the city. Loud live music can be annoying if you’re not in the mood for it.

The place itself is nice, with a friendly staff and good people. The selection is good but I didn’t appreciate much. That’s not my stuff.
