Good food and a great atmosphere. Excellent customer service. No problem asking for an extra plate and didn't take long to be seated.

I love the central location. It's close to all other pubs in Killarney. Its the perfect place to start the night. Food is always good and you can just have drinks here if you like. Often they have live music playing.

Sorry, not sure. I would also suggest checking the website; maybe there is an email option to contact someone at the restaurant.

We opened "The Porterhouse Gastropub" in the height of the recession in December 2011, year on year business has continued to grow. We pride ourselves in serving good pub grub accompanied with live music. We have a full bar, which is known to be a lively spot on the weekends. We offer live music 7 nights a week - all year round.
If you are looking for a quiet fine dining meal in a restaurant environment, we aren't the place for you.
