This spot surprised me when I stumbled upon it for the first time. I live in the Northern City centre of Dublin and often take a walk after work to explore the North and to discover some not too crowded places there. Apart from the previously explored Garden of Remembrance and the Royal Canal where I go rollerblading from time to time – I had not found a good place for food in the North. And then, at the end of the Canal I saw an ad: “Porterhouse”.
We all know that 2 Porterhouses in Dublin city are usually extremely busy, and as I am not a big fan of huge crowds I would avoid those places. A little bit suspicious – and hungry – I went into the Porterhouse North, there was a soccer match going that I was expected to see.
Surprisingly, there was a terrace (beer garden) outside, good service, a large range of beers from all over the world, and a great friendly service! My huge portion of chicken wings for € 12 could feed 2-3 people! Lots of screens for all sports fans too – after the next rollerblading session I will definitely go there again!
