visited this place 3 times on our stop in Dublin simply because we enjoyed the beer and liked sitting in the small outside patio. Nice selection of beer and lots of other options from around the world although nothing crazy. Food and service were average as were the prices. One of the better beer options in Dublin.

Right in Temple Bar. Irish looks bar with a few unusual tap handles sporting some Irish craft beers which is always nice to find in this area of Dublin. They also offer their own beers which numbered six during my visit. Waiter was very helpful in answering my questions and making recommendations that is until shift change came and we got a rather inexperienced waitress whose errors in service seemed to aggravate more than just our table. Ambiance is what you get in Temple Bar district, many tourists with some locals. TV playing the foot ball game. Some live music during the evening. Food was my worse experience in Dublin as attested my two friends. Reminiscent of festival burgers that were cooked in the same fat that has been cooked over and over for the whole day. These were probably the greasiest burger I ever got with some of the worse fries. Bacon burger with a tiny shriveled slice of bacon, a slice of tomato, tiny cheap hard chunk of iceberg lettuce and a small piece of onion for just 11€50. Beers were average and only the stouts stood out.

Temple Bar location is convenient. Large enough that even when crowded it’s 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, it’s really not a bad place to go drinking and you probably won’t find a better stout range in the city.

The micro-brew trend hasn’t quite taken off in Ireland yet, but this place is off to a great start. Consistently good-great beers and a lot of passion for making them turn this place into a must-see for anyone interested in Ireland’s brewing scene. Decent prices for Dublin. More importantly, decent creativity with the brews! Not every beer will be a winner but tasting them is a lot of fun.

Not a bad place as I recall although not great. Was pretty busy even for a Tuesday night & was rather expensive like most places in Dublin.

Great place to grab a brew in Dublin. betetr yet they have the best porter in Ireland. My only qualm is that this place is pretty artifical looking. Its a neat and trendy updated take on a Irish pub, but it seems a little too commercial. The staff was great, they treated us well and were chatty once they saw us a enthusiasts.

A really nice and large place, dedicated to good beer. Live music every night (I think), and by any parameter the best bar i found in Dublin. The selection is huge by Irish standards, and they even brew their own beers (9 regular and seasonals aswell), but as always I miss a few beers with (other than the Belgians) stronger than 5 percent, with Schneiders Aventinus (including the rare Eisbock) as nice exceptions.

What a place, a very nice pub with 4 floors and sometimes live concert. At all floors you have around 10 or more beers on tap available, specially products brewed there. But also lot of other beers available in bottle format. A nice decoration with huge number of beer from every where in the world, nice. The best in this area.

I preferred the other Porterhouse over this one. Less crowded, more friendly staff, nicer place. Beers, of course, are the same.

Rating during 2009 Ireland trip. The ambience of the place is very nice even with the largeness of the place. The bartenders seem to know a little to a lot about beer which was a nice change of pace as most of Ireland doesn’t seem to know anything outside the Diageo brands. Selection was all of their beers, most of them on nitro with one cask option. Good pricing as well with a variety of sample options. Food based on a vegetarians opinion was not bad. Overall it was very enjoyable and I would reccomend going if you are in Dublin.
