"Inside The Porterhouse" Dublin's irresistible pub culture Tip by Kentbein

by Kentbein

Favorite thing: While we're here, we may as well go inside and grab a brew. A word of warning though. This is one of the few places in Dublin that does NOT serve Guinness! I swear it, there is in fact a pub in this city that refuses to stock the mighty Guinness. It's hard to believe, I know. It floored me too.

The Porterhouse prides itself (rightly so, too) on it's own fine brews. We happened to be there during Octoberfest, and they did import some of Germany's finest brews to honor our Germanic brothers and sisters, but the specialities of the house are their own superb brews, so this is a good place to sit back, relax, and be a little treasonous to the stalwart king of Ireland's breweries, Guinness!!!
