About
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.

Great night of good Guinness and even better trad music
Jan 2020
Spent a few cosy hours in the Porterhouse (again)...cosy spot, with good trad music, professional bar staff and the best of Guinness... always our first stop off when visiting Westport. Central location, amongst loads of good places to eat and drink....a must.

Brilliant Sunday night
Jan 2020
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

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.

Legendary Larry
Oct 2019 • Couples
My self and husband dropped into the porter house on Sunday evening during the October bank holiday.
The bar was very busy, numerous football matches were being shown in different areas.
We managed to get a high stool in the back snug to watch Man Utd game.
Larry was working and even tho it was so busy he took time to have a little chat. Very charming man, good craic and very warm and welcoming. I’d go as far to say he is the heart and soul of the porter house!
The bar had live music after the football, which was fantastic. The atmosphere in this little bar is so charming, So much so that we went back the next day.
The pints of Guinness are brilliant here as was the cocktail Larry whipped up for me for my birthday.
He made our mini break very memorable. 10/10

Visit to County Mayo
Oct 2019
By far the best pub to visit in Westport. Great bar staff--Joe, Ryan, and Larry--make you feel welcomed immediately. Great music sessions 2 times per night, great local folks to chat with, and not over crowded. Wonderfully drawn pints! Just a wonderfully nice, comfortable place to enjoy good music, craic, and pints. Do not skip this pub.
