well i thought this place was awesome. i think 4 or 5 floors, a nice change up of beers also. i loved the atmosphere here, allthought it was a bit crowded it was good to have something other than guinness in ireland. didn’t get to try the food. my only complaint is that it was a robbery to pay 5 euro a pint ($7.50)!

My experiences with Porterhouse is not very good either. I agree wid BelJohansen, the staff know shit about the beers they are serving....way too cold. I have as well experinced they wont serve more than one beer at a time and they get pissed when you explain to them why you dont want them so cold. They are just very young and inexperinced.... The bouncers are not very nice either, they almost make you feel guilty having one pint and are ready to kick you out asap. they are probably boring there steroid pumped asses like shit. I would any time prefer a guinness down my local to their homw brew...very watery. Not recommendable...

KimJohansen  (10) Frederiksberg C, Denmark | September 17, 2007
This place is a joke. They try to give the impression of a serious beer bar stripped from mainstream beers. That’s at least what they write themselves in the menu. The sad truth though is a beer menu stuffed with beers like Corrs Light, Corona, Sol, Heineken and Miiller…. The personal is pretty much incompetent when it comes to specialty beers and when given advice in a friendly manner, on how to serve, keep and handle beer, they act insulted. No proper glassware and the beers are served way to cold. When my mate and I last visited the place we got kicked out because we bought 5 beers each in order to heat the ice cold beers up. That was apparently out of order… As I started of, this place is a joke and a complete waste of time for the serious connaisseur.

Great variety of their own beers plus a pretty good list of bottles. Food was great. Very helpful staff. This would be a good find anywhere, but in Dublin... it is salvation for the beer geek.

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?
