You're in Dublin, you've done the traditional (Guinness Storehouse Tour), now it's time to get to Temple Bar and visit the finest craft beer establishment in the city. With a dozen of their own draught beers, as well as many guest ones, this establishment is well worth imbibing in. The atmosphere is pleasant and is suitable for all ages. On... More

We went on the first day of our visit to Dublin and we left very happy. We hadn't eat since that morning and it was still soon for dinner, so we ordered some nachos and fish and chips, with a couple of beers. They don't have Guinness, but the bartender recommended a similar one, and it was great! They have... More

Nice pub located in house with multiple floors. Waitresses are nice and caring, while managers are more… humm, to the point. The offer of beers is breathtaking, but it is probably a better idea to explore the offering of fresh beers from the tap. Unfortunately, Porterhouse demonstrates that food and drinks are different businesses. The quality of food served here... More

Went for lunch, good selection of beer on tap. Sit upstairs to get a good view of the area. Restaurant is on a corner so you can see a good portion of the temple bar area.

This is the first bar scene we went to in Dublin and although it was big and open with a lot of different food options- I wasn't absolutely wowed by the atmosphere. Yes, it had an Irish feel with a lot tables to choose from but we unfortunately chose the worst lit area of the bar (our fault). The service... More

Lived in Dublin for 6 months, and we enjoyed a lot going to this place - nice live music and tap beer. For tourists and locals, but still fun.

Really nice pub, with a huge range of drinks (sorry, I wasn't paying attention at the food). Nice people all over the place (the bartenders, the waiters, the clients). Go there!

Great looking gastro / craft beer pub. Good beers, good place if you have munchies. Service was good. Maybe would need a bit more variety and daring on craft beers but did well job with their normal porters.

The perfect bar with a range of beers plenty of seats and a lively atmosphere. The alcohol was quiet expensive but the live band was well worth the extra euros.
