The Port House, owned by The Porterhouse Group which in addition owns the renowned Lillie’s Bordello on Grafton Street. Port House serves an array of tapas and pintxos as well as an extensive range of fine wines, ports and sherries

Located at 64A South William Street this beautiful and solely candle lit wine cavern has been stripped back to its original features. Wine educated staff are on hand to help you choose your bottle from the shelf while sampling the different types of pintxos and tapas. Commenting on the opening, director, Lee Sim of The Porterhouse Group said, “We want to create something different in Dublin, a traditional Spanish tapas bar where one can relax, have a glass of wine and some pintxos without having a full three course meal. It will be your typical Spanish tapas bar with varied pintxos displays, but in true Spanish style, will have a limited table service.”

The Port House wine list is wide, varied and full of interesting wines, ports and sherries at a very reasonable price.

FACILITIES

Wine Only Veggie options available Luscious Dublin Bay prawns, succulent oysters, melt in the mouth mussels, mouth-watering mackerel…just some of the delicious seafood you’ll find on menus around Ireland.

Irish people love to eat seafood when dining out; in fact, unlike our European neighbours, we eat more seafood outside the home. Perhaps this is a testament to the quality of our seafood restaurants. And for many visitors, a trip to Ireland wouldn’t be complete without sampling a few oysters and sinking a pint of the black stuff. Will cater for children Will accept party bookings Accept major credit cards

Nice restaurant with a great atmosphere. Some of the food is really good (meatballs in particular), some is fairly average but it's reasonable and they have a good selection. Drinks are pricey though. Food was served quickly but we were waiting a while whenever we ordered drinks, however it was very busy when we were there. Staff are very friendly.

Usually love the restaurant but they had a bad night tonight. Not enough staff, slow service and food not up to usual standard. Will go back but better during the week

I love the Port House for Tapas! The atmosphere is excellent and the staff are very attentive. There were four of us and got about 15 tapas, tasting port, and 2 bottles of wine for 160e which Is excellent value. The only thing I would say, is if you're in a rush this isn't the place for you as you will have to wait for a table but it's definitely worth the wait!

Really excellent choice of dishes on the menu, and works out really affordable. Highlights include the grilled asparagus and the confit duck! So good. Staff were very attentive, helpful and friendly.

The Port House is one of my favourite places for a girls lunch. It is very cosy inside, the wine menu is fantastic as well as the food. The staff are always very friendly and helpful without being over attentive.

I always look forward to visiting this lovely place! Firstly the decor and atmosphere is always wonderful and intimate whether you are on date night or with close friends. The food is so tasty and I love the fact that you can choose from many different plates and get a taste of everything without feeling too full. The calamari, chorizo and paella are particular favourites! There are also too many good things to say about the wine on offer. There is a huge selection to choose from which the lovely staff are more than happy to run through with you. I have been guilty of ordering a second bottle of wine for dessert and hanging around to soak up the cosy candlelit atmosphere!

Have been here on many occasions but had not visited for at least a year. Delighted to say that the food, service and value are as good as ever. Went for a casual evening meal and selected many tapas, all of which were delicious. Service was fantastic... Wasn't sure what wine I wanted so I was brought a taster of a wine the waiter recommended - it was exactly what I was looking for. Love that they are happy for you to stay as long as you like. Never feel pressured to leave even when they do have queues out the door. Will definitely be returning.
