Description: 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.

The food very good and the service is excellent. We had the steak Medallions and split. It was two 5 oz steaks and they were cooked perfectly.

Very average food. I can't understand why this place is so busy, maybe because they seat people really quickly and target tourists market or that they have music in corner traditional folk. This is not what I call a gastro pub, selection of beers is standard Irish pub fare.
Menu is limited, we ordered chicken wings as starter - six deep fried wings with a little barbecue sauce on top, not nice. Caesar salad with chicken was fine, ordered and came with five strips of chicken, the nicest thing was baked potato. One positive is that the service is good.

I went with a group of friends when visiting Ireland for the first time. I had the steak sandwich which was fantastic!! It came with a Jameson peppercorn sauce which was the nicest peppercorn sauce I have ever tasted. Lovely atmosphere and great staff too.
