One of my targets on coming to Dublin was to visit this place. Nice staff, fantastic beer and some great food plus a welcoming atmosphere. Local beer is unique since they serve their own brews. Spoilt for choice in international beer.

Let me say the porter here is as good as Guinness. Loved it. Great choice of beers, as you'd expect from a brew pub, and a decent enough bog-standard US-type food menu. Worth a walk from the busier part of Temple Bar, but you may...More

Porterhouse is a very nice bar with a wide selection of beers. Also they offer whiskey, gin, and vodka selections. Along with a cocktail menu. They also offer a good food menu with good vegetarian choices.

one of the only brewery pubs in Dublin, here you can come to scape the Guinness and drink their own homemade beer that is very good. besides, the pub is so pretty and elegant.

Visited this place with friends last weekend, the food and service were great. We visited with a child and the staff were very helpful on finding a slightly larger table because we had a buggy. We would visit again and I definitely recommend this place.More

I agree with Ann - the place is very big on several floors. But it's also quite crowded. So I would suggest you booking in advance.
