Situated conveniently between Ha’penny Bridge and Dublin Castle in the popular Temple Bar district. A great place to head for probably the best range of beers in Dublin. Good selection of foreign beers available too.

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.

Pretty cool place to check out if your in the neighborhood, decent beer. Selection is the best I saw in Ireland as far as bottles go. The food is above average, the burgers are pretty darn good.

Had a great time here! The food was great. I wish I would have been rating when I went because the beer was spectacular. Love the layout and atmosphere.

Very crowded but most enjoyable brewpub. Lots of choices, especially on tap. East european waitresses/waiters know their beer. Fast service and lots of variety. Very microapproach, so why only have Heineken and Grolsch representing the NL? Pity that.

The best beer selection in Dublin, no doubt. It’s not much of an accomplishment since virtually every other pub serves little more than Guinness. Nevertheless, The Porterhouse goes the extra mile providing a basic selection of bottles covering all continents including a few highlights that will please beginning and accomplished drinkers alike (Rochefort, Chimay and such). The main attraction, however, is the splendid home tap list featuring a set of well-crafted ales and lagers, sensationally drinkable and quite characterful too. Guinness has gift-wrapped its challenge to the local beer scene and Porterhouse replied with a polite but utterly crushing victory. The pub itself maintains a traditional atmosphere that seems to please everyone, including myself. My only question is: who will defy the new champion?

Temple Bar location. I actually came here in ’03 and didn’t even realize it was the same place I found on RB until I walked in. Four or five levels of drinking. Solid selection of their beers and bottles. Seems like they have some range and imagination in their brews, which is good. Live music everyday. If your sick of drinking Carlsberg, Guinness and wanna see some live music and drink some decent beers this place is where its at.

There is two locations of The Porterhouse in Dublin. Very good own beers and lots of other stuff too. They sell samplers. I was suprised to find Pagoa beers here. Staff was friendly and knew about beers.

I went there on a quiet afternoon, had some splendid oysters and sampled their beers. There may be more historic and authentic places in Dublin, but this was a beer oasis in a wasteland of Guinness. Friendly service, too, so I’ll be sure to go back next time I’m in Dublin.

I really liked this place (dublin location). It was especially nice since all the other bars always have the same crap and this place has some pretty solid house beers, and a very nice bottle selection. It is very close to temple bar area so it is close to all the action. Inside is really cool- at least 3-4 floors with a few different bars on the different levels- on one of the upper levels there is a large table made to look like a huge copper brew kettle that you can sit at. Also a huge bottle collection throughout the entire brewpub- but look close- some of the bottles have lables that arent real- like some of the carlsberg bottles. It is quite amusing.. Food was just decent- nothing special- although I decided to eat here 2x because of the beer. Service was a bit slow the first time and wasnt even crowded, then the second time was a bit better. Fun place to hang out at night as well. If going to Dublin- this is an obvious stop- as well as Maguires I might add.
