Monday to Thursdays all Porterhouse Draughts only €4 and €1 off all cocktails, Fridays its 2 for 1 on daiquiris all night long, The Sunday Blowout has €5 cocktails all day long & DJ Zoggy. We continuously have beer bottle specials and our €20 meal deal (Starter,main and a drink). Good times!
We are looking forward to all the upcoming sport this Feb. Big excitement for The RBS Six Nations this year. Cant wait C'mon Ireland. The Premiership, Champions League, FA Cup are very much getting down to the business end of things. There will be some super big names clashes shown on our massive screen live all through feb and beyond.
Anyway guys we are rambling on here. Hope to see you all soon.
All the best from us here in Porterhouse North
Hi Blog Readers
Hope we are all well. Loads going on here at North at the MOment (pun intended). The guys behind the bar are all (the ones who can) growing there moustaches raising money for Movember. We all look a bit silly but sure its a bit of craic and its for a great cause.
Our Czech Beer festival is running as we blog and we have 3 Czech beers including our own hand-crafted Bohemia which is a 5% Dark Lager. All our Czech beers are limited editions so make sure you call in to try some before they are all gone.
Yes if you have drove by North over the last few days you will see our Christmas Decorations have gone up.... Too early?! Nah never we are just eager to get the festive season going. Its going to be a mad Christmas so many days booked out already. One of the biggest New years parties will be taking place here in North well if its anything like last year. Pure madness. Tips for this year come early as those leave it late to come maybe be disappointed.
From all the Staff here at the Porterhouse North we would like to wish all our customers a Merry Christmas and a happy successful New year.
Hope all is well. Here in North we love October because there is always so much happening. Obviously our beer selection always increases with the due to Oktoberfest we have 7 different bottles and so far we have had 3 different draughts on offer with a few more to come so make sure you ask what we have pouring at the bar. We recently got a boxing machine in the beer garden as you can imagine the staff and the customers are loving. A bit of competition between the staff.
Both European cups are in full flight and are both shown on our bigscreen. The Sunday blowout is going great with €5 cocktails, beer bottle specials all day, Late Bar and DJ Pauly D..... Cocktails flying out!!
One of our favourite nights of the year is Trick or Treat for Temple St fancy dress fundraiser mad night last and is expected to be equally as mad this years. Its a great cause and great fun for all involved. Hope to see you all there.
Until next month people...

Hi Guys, Thanks for checking out Porterhouse North. Mad Christmas time and we would like to thank all who were here for our massive NYE blow out.
However, this is all in the past and here at Porterhouse North we are looking very much to the future. One word to describe how we are feeling about the next few months is EXCITEMENT!! So much to look forward to...
St. Patrick’s Day going to be another epic day especially with our boys in green taking on the English on our national day in the RBS Six Nations. Even if you are not a supporter of rugby I think you will be roaring at our massive projecter!! Paddys Day = Great Irish music, Great Irish banter, and EVEN GREATER 100% Irish Beer.
Sportswise it’s off the wall...
RBS Six Nations, The Champions League playoffs & final, The Heineken cup playoffs & Final, FA CUP, The Olympics etc..
The big one this summer is EURO 2012. It has been along time since we were there and here at the Porterhouse North we promise to be the biggest and best supporter. This June we are all about the GREEN WHITE AND ORANGE.
A few big gigs coming in Croke Park - WESTLIFE for two days and the RHCP…. We will be the biggest and best before and after parties of these massive stadium concerts.
Anyway guys, thank you for reading and we hope to see you in soon for a sneaky pint of Plain and an aul chinwag.
The Staff at The Porterhouse North.
P.S.: Find us on Facebook and see whats going on.
This is exciting...
Hello to all our lil blog readers out there.
We are late with our blog because we have been so busy with all our Christmas preparations we just got the place fully decorated. It's so festive we think Santa and his Elves might just fit right in here. We certainly have the space for all the Elf & Reindeer after work parties.
Our first weekend in December has gone by and we hope they are all like that. Thanks to all the parties and bookings that were here over the course of the weekend. Really a great festive feel to the place. Our two resident DJs (DJ Duffy: Fridays DJ Doogan: Saturdays) had everyone up on the dance floor all weekend. The place was kicking. Our Sunday bands are going great. Always a nice buzz around each Sunday from 9pm - some super bands coming over the next few weeks with the likes of Crosstown and Santoria. Our live football shown on our big screen always gets a crowd in even on a Monday or Tuesday. I think its mainly for our wings though. Have you tried them?
In other news Come Dine with me Ireland popped in to film a couple of weeks ago. We had a few of the All-Ireland Dublin team in for a few casual drinks of our finest porter over the last few weeks also.
We suggest if you are thinking of coming to us this Christmas best to give us a call as we are filling up as they days go by.
Thanks for taking the time to read this. We hope you all have a fantastic Christmas and if we don't see you soon we hope to see you in the New Year with all the big events coming in the new year... Like Westlife in Croker AND The Dubs Lifting Sam for a 2nd time!!!
Thanks for taking the time to read our lil blog.
