The Porterhouse -- the largest Irish-owned brewery -- is not open to the public, but I was fortunate enough to be invited to visit for the launch of a new beer in June 2008.

It's a highly unglamorous set-up, tucked away in the corner of a soulless industrial estate on the edge of Dublin. At the front there's a small office and tasting bar, leading back to a cavernous warehouse where the beer is brewed and kegged.

Conditioning tanks dominate the brewing floor, and the highlight for me was being able to sample Plain Porter directly from the conditioner -- so much tastier than the nitrogenated finished product.

Visiting the brewery is very much for brewing enthusiasts only, and preferably for those with their own transport. However, if you'd like to know how big Irish microbreweries can get, make an appointment and go have a look.
