I visited this pub on my third visit to Dublin and had not been in before because i thought it looked too much like a chain pub which i didnt fancy. however i was drawn in one night by the band that were playing who can only be decribed as amazing! The bar serves every beer you could ever imagine from all over the world. They are listed by country in the menu where it gives you a description of the taste. Being new to beer it was great for me as i could try so many!! There are heaps of nooks and crannies to sit in and about 4 floors with the music being in the centre on a small balcony. It is no more expensive than any other bar and the choice is enormous. They also ... Read the complete review

I've been a regular visitor to the porterhouse since it opened - which, given the sheer range of pubs in Dublin, must say something. I've long been a fan of the porterhouse red beer, and delight in the fact that it's one of the extremely rare places where you can experience the joy of Sleeman's outside of Canada. The beer prices remain reasonable, despite the popularity of the pub (although a night on imported bottled beers, which often cost over £3 a go, could set you back a bit!). The bar is huge, especially on weekends when all four floors are open. It's well worth taking some time to people watch, if you can get one of the stools above the main bar (you can count the Read the complete review

~ ~ The Porterhouse, located in the famous tourist area of Temple Bar in Dublin, is in fact far more than just a pub/restaurant. It opened its doors as recently as 1996, and was the first “micro-brewery” ever to open in Ireland, and although many others have since tried to emulate its success, the Porterhouse remains the undoubted leader in this lucrative market. As distinct from old-fashioned traditional Irish pubs the Porterhouse is all that is new and innovative in pub design. But it has not, however, lost sight of the fact that it is above all else an Irish pub, and everything about the Porterhouse is a cut above your average theme pub so ... Read the complete review

My fourth time in Dublin, and though I love the more traditional bars in Temple Bar (even though they're stuffed with 99 per cent fellow Brits rather than locals), I decided to venture a little further afield. The Porterhouse is on Parliament Street (which runs from the Liffey at one end up to.. well, the Parliament building at the other) and within seconds of stepping inside, we felt at home. Was it the wood panelling which dominates the place, or maybe the sound of a singer floating from an upstairs bar? We followed the sound, and packed in with dozens of others to watch the guy doing a whole range of rock cover versions on a tiny corner stage ... Read the complete review

100 kinds of beer, you can buy there, but not one Guinness. If you will drink a beer just like Guinness than you must say one pint of plain please. You can also test the brain blasta but be carefully the name is programm. You can also eat very nice sandwiches or many chicken variations but that's very hot!!! But the best is the music in the porterhouse every night different music but the same music program is the one week later. And don't forget the Highlight's from 6.-13 October Octoberfest bavarian beer from 1.- 8 Dezember the week of the belgian beer Very very very strong Test it for the science !!! ...
