In a town that is dominated by Guinness and much worse, this is an essential place to visit to grab some decent beers. It has some excellent points; It brews its own draft beers (3 stouts, 1 of which is an oyster flavoured one, 1 red beer and a lager style or 2). It has an excellent selection of bottled beers from around the world well presented in a Beer Menu. Not all beers available all the time however, but I can forgive that. What is the main downside are the prices, but it is Dublin after all so what can you expect. It was galling to pay 5.20 for a Rochefort 6, having paid 2.80 for the same beer in Amsterdam the week before. The Dutch still have to import this beer, even if it's only "up the road" from Belgiuim. Best of a bad lot in the heart of tourist Dublin.

Four stories of seating, live music, impressive collection of bottles on show all over the place. Nice place to go out. I went with a large group and our orders were all correct and quickly filled. I ordered wings to share with a buddy and they were great quality. On to the more important stuff; the beer high quality and abundant. Their Oyster stout is fantastic and a prime representation of the Irish Dry Stout. If you aren't in the mood to try something new, they've got a bottle list longer than any I've seen in Ireland with stuff from the States and all over Europe. Not bad pricing either. I would highly recommend stopping in here to anyone in Dublin.

We visited here in April 2012 while on a tour of UKoGBaNI and Ireland. After a long ferry ride we dragged the kids to Porterhouse to have a few beers. It was kid-friendlier than most places we visited, and had no problem accommodating the wee ones.
Good beer. I had a sampler and tried most everything. We had standard pub food, which was standard. If you're a tourist visiting the area with family, I'd recommend this. If you're looking for a local experience, look elsewhere.

A great craft beer local in Dublin, and one of the best. A great range of brews from unique IPAs to stouts!
A-Great Irish theme, excellent Irish enviroment, and craft bar essence in the tourist district of Temple Bar. I went during the Olympics and Irish
Q-BEST BEERS IN IRELAND! Freak'n excellent!
S-Top notch! Very knowledgeable, provide great insight and recommendations into brews.
S-Numerous ales, lagers, & stouts on tap. Ask for a bottle of their barrel-aged imperial stout - best thing an Irish brewer has ever done; they do not advertise!
F-Food is excellent! Try the Irish cuisine!
V-Prices on the Slightly on the high side due to location in the tourist district!
Better than the overrated Temple Bar and a Guiness!
