Plenty of room, lots of floors. Very popular with all ages. Excellent food. Good value. Ground floor maybe better for wheel chair and push chair users.

I came here with my boyfriend last week. I am a regular in Dublin as I have family here but it was his first time. I had been to the porterhouse before and enjoyed it but after this visit I really was embarrassed that I had taken him there. Firstly, their website is not up to date - we went... More

Big bar , split level , wooden features everywhere. The most comprehensive range & display of beers outside of Belgium. The food is fantastic too. Go here Sunday morning for late breakfast and browse the broadsheets before completing your recovery with s pint of oyster stout. This is one of my fave bars .

This could be a nice little pub. It's reasonably priced, however in need of a clean. The photo attached is just one thing that set my OCD off!

I hadn't visited in a few months but popped in on Friday after work for pre dinner drinks. We tried a few different beers including the Plain Porter and the Chiller and they were all great. The staff are very friendly too and the pub was so warm, cosy and welcoming on a cold dark Friday evening.
