Spread over 12 floors, the tallest pub in London offers a variety of atmospheres. Whether you’ve come in for a quiet pint or a big knees-up with a group of friends, The Porterhouse has it covered. Their Guinness is shipped in straight from Dublin so you know you’re enjoying an authentic Irish stout. If you’re in the mood for a little jig, head down to the basement and enjoy some live music!

Your nearest train station is London Charing Cross (CHX).

Of course, there is no shortage of Irish pubs in Scotland, especially Glasgow and Edinburgh, but we wouldn’t be fulfilling our service if we didn’t recommend at least one. Biddy Mulligans has a wonderful Irish feel to it. Pub pies (all food comes with a 25% discount for students), live music and live sports are available for everyone to enjoy. If you’re heading there for St Patrick’s Day, Biddy Mulligans is open until 1 am!

Edinburgh Waverley train station is only a 10-minute walk from the watering hole.

A feel good Irish pub that you’re welcome in ‘til the early hours of the morn’. 2 am to be exact! Enjoy a bite to eat, drink and be merry when you’re in O’Neill’s. The live sports will surely make you feel at home and there may be live music for you to enjoy. Any folk will quickly see that this pub is a pleasure to be in and will find that the craic is as good as the stout!

Cardiff Central station is under a five-minute walk to the pub.

Please remember to stay safe and drink responsibly!
