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.

“Good Food”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Excellent top range pub food. Served well and good service. Range of wines very good. It gets really busy and we were lucky to get in just in time. Told those who were waiting as we left that it was worth the wait.

“Would eat here again”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

We had dinner here last Saturday night and really enjoyed it. They do not do the 3 course for €25 at the weekend.

I had the Chicken Wings to start and hubby had the Brie. Both were lovely.

I had the Chicken for Main Course and hubby had the chicken stir fry.

Service was very good and the waitresses were extremely helpful and friendly.

We really enjoyed our meal and will eat here again when in Killarney.

“Don't try to do food you aren't capable of”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

We had a 3pm lunch and everything was great until the food came. We were pleased to see Veggie Fajitas on the menu. The waitress informed us that one of the specials was Scampi. We ordered a sensational bottle of wine - the New Zealand Aotea Sauvignon Blanc and the barman was great and the two waitresses were great. The pub was clean and inviting but then the food arrived. It was well presented but the Scampi was just some random oily balls 80% breadcrumbs and could have been anything inside. The Fajita dish was just three colors of capsicum (peppers) with onion and a few traces of zucchini fried so much it was just the skin left and in a horrid curry/sweet & sour type sauce. Should have just had fish and chips.
