In 1967, a small group of Irish entrepreneurs came to the U.S. and started Porter with the goal of bringing the best of Dublin pubs to the U.S. That goal stands firm today as we bring Irish Pub into the 21st Century.

Buskers Pub and Restaurant is more than a spot to enjoy a Guinness and a burger. Buskers is Newport’s gastropub. A gastropub is a pub that specializes in serving high quality food at affordable prices. Buskers is open 365 days a year. We are open for lunch and dinner. The bar includes a large selection of Irish whiskey,scotch, cocktails and over 20 beers on tap.
