The Porterhouse has won the award for Best Music Pub in Ireland at the Irish Pub Awards.

The Westport pub is well known for its music sessions - of which there are 364 a year. 

They join O’Connell’s Bar, Galway (who won the award for best outdoor) in being Connacht winners on the national stage.

The bar had also been nominated for Bar of the Year at the People's Choice Awards. 

Owner Joe O'Malley told Midwest News: 

"It just raises the bar no more than any other industry in Westport. The better you get, the bar is raised and makes for better pubs and for the experience for the people coming in. It's all good and it brings everyone on."
