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 people...it 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.

First visited here in the summer of 1998 on the reccomendation of a non beer geek cousin of mine who lived in Dublin at the time. Have been back a number of times since, most recently Aug ’11. Back in the day Messrs Maguire and here were the only places to get a beer in Dublin that wasn’t Guinness or mainstream lager so it was a breath of fresh air! Split level pub with lots of glass, tiles and copper, bars on a few levels. Always crowded of an evening - don’t expect to get a seat if you show up after 5pm! Service is OK and copes with the crowds, a little more local/office types than tourists due to it being on the far end of Temple Bar, but yo do still get a fair smattering of the latter. Range is Porterhouse plus 100 or so bottles. Worth stopping by on a visit to Dublin.

stayed in dublin for 2 days and this was the best bar we found. good food, nice atmosphere and good selection of food. the beer was good and the choice was great. the oak aged celebration stout was by far the best here.

Absolutely fantastic place in Temple Bar. Nice decor of copper and beer bottles. Highly crowded in evenings. Nice tap selection, bottle selection is also good. Place to visit when you are in Dublin.

Went a few years back, loved the place, best beer bar in town, although there isn’t many (maybe it’s changed) The Oyster Stout was my favourite beer, blew Guinness away!

Their beers are not as good as I expected. Good international selection but too small. Too turistic.

Nice pub, pretty good selection of world beers and a selection of their own beers which are not too bad. Decent food available also.
