Food is excellent, some of the best I had in Ireland. Entertainment was the best I heard in Ireland and I went to many places with live music. Service was fast and super efficient. Try the 13 beer on tap.

Not generally a fan of seafood soup, but the seafood chowder here was delicious! Very creamy, perfectly cooked, and fish was fresh. We also ordered the Prawns Pil Pil. This dish was amazing. Prawns covered in butter and garlic. The flavor was incredible and the...More

The Porterhouse is a Gastro-Pub. This is a designation that is a way to separate traditional pubs and those who are moving in a more inventive direction. We had a good meal and the server was wonderful. The owner is a butcher so we did...More

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.
