Description

The Porter House is a traditional, charming and characterful pub with a cosy décor that adds to the warm and welcoming atmosphere. It boasts a superb location in the heart of Westport town on the main shopping and entertainment thoroughfare and has a heated beer garden at the rear of the premises. Larry and his team are known for their professionalism and warm welcome which allows all customers to feel included and at home. If there is such a thing as an Irish pub, you can’t get much more authentic than this! Yet the Porter House remains unpretentious and offers the best live music 7 nights a week. Afternoon music sessions on Saturdays and Sundays during the summer are hugely popular with visitors to the area and locals alike. Both local and visiting musicians are welcomed to the Porter House and invited to join in on the music and the craic. Our live music programme will resume as soon as Covid-19 restrictions allow.

Amazing

Visited this place recently, Met at the bar by a man called Seamus, couldn’t have been nicer, such a Jack the lad! such an Irish feel, had the wine from the bottle, like a lullaby on the tip of my tongue. Padraig was pulling the pints, the creamiest pints I’ve tasted in a long time!!!! Both lads with great Irish humor, perfect for the tourists!! Will deffinetly be back.. 10/10

Pack them in! No COVID worries...

First impressions when entering were encouraging... there was a rope barrier to stop and check all COVID vaccine passes and sign people in, Good stuff and happy with this.
Live music started at 9pm and a group of 12+ people entered and were seated very close to existing customers without any social distancing thoughts, management were actually moving extra seating in to accommodate this and pack them in. Very uncomfortable but the live music was great so put up with it.
It gets worse... More customers arrive in numbers and again management start pulling extra chairs out and actually packing the new arrivals in on top of people with strangers actually sitting shoulder to shoulder with others. Not comfortable at all and no regard to social distancing... Grrrr.
Made the decision to leave early as a result and exit the sardine pack... Said it to manager on way out that he was actually a DISGRACE and hoped he enjoyed the extra money without looking after his customers safety... He just said FAIR POINT and sheepishly stared at his feet.
Not acceptable in the middle of COVID surge.

Brilliant Sunday night

First Sunday night in January and this bar was bunged. Live music and an even livelier crowd.
After 45 minutes we were lucky enough to get two barstools and for the next few hours were served by two of the friendliest.observant barmen I have come across in a long time. They were unbelievably busy but still had time to interact with their customers. Made you feel they were your best friends.
Totally recommend this bar if in Westport

Live Music

We stopped in here both nights we were in Westport, there was live music both nights by different musicians and it was great, it was a mix of locals and tourists, brilliant atmosphere and the lads behind the bar were quick and efficient even when busy.
