We just got to PV on Grey Cup sunday, and were franticly trying to find a place that had the game on. Of course there had to be some huge soccer thing on most TV's, but Murphy's had the game on. Were able to catch the whole second half of the game and had good drinks and munchies too. I... More

Good burgers and wonderful people and pelican watching spot. Great fun with an incredible-albeit traffic noisy-view! Friendly and humorous waitstaff. Lots of beer and ale to choose from.

Murphy's Irish Pub is a happening place where the views of the ocean and Malacon are fabulous. The food was fresh with generous portions. I was there in the mid afternoon and had a hard time leaving as my waiter was attentive and brought me ice cold beer, I watched the people walking along the Malacon and listened to the... More

We are vacationing from Chicago. We stumbled across Murphy's the first day of vacation and we have visited every day since. The live music was excellent. Happy hour was a great value. Snacks we ordered were delicious. I will recommend everyone stop by this place and enjoy the atmosphere.

Neat place, an island of Gallic pleasure surrounded by Mexican charm. If nothing else, you can get a full liter mug of draft Negra Modello beer. Thought I had died and gone to heaven. Also, don't miss the Irish Car Bomb.

The view alone is a reason to come to Murphy's, but we were totally amazed as we were reluctantly leaving to be stopped and told that we had paid too much as the calamari was the day's special. The margaritas were refreshing as well as the honesty!

Easy to miss this gem on the 2nd level, but don't pass it by. The owner, John, never let my glass empty. The beachside sunset views were amazing. The staff is awesome and attentive. The fish and chips are not to be missed!! And they have pints of guiness right in the middle of vallarta!! Can't wait to go back.

Went with another couple and we had the fish & shrimp & chips- the breading was light and had a good flavor. The shrimp was the better of the two. Our waiter was Rodger and was just great. The wife had a couple of Mojitos and the other couple had Margaritas and everyone enjoyed them.

We have been to Murphy's twice now in our first week in PV. The staff are friendly and attentive, the food was great (hamburger and then wings) and the owner - Jon, was good enough to put on a football game we could not see in our condo. The location of the pub is convenient, right in the heart of... More
