Have you ever walked into a pub and immediately felt at home, John Murphy himself will make you feel that way. Bless him and his staff for this home away from home. The view is well worth the price of admission which is free. Tell John Hello for me.

I am so grateful we took the advice of other Trip Advisors. Murphys was great! The owner John was so friendly and even accommodated a food request that wasn't on the menu! A few of the family members ordered the fish and chips and raved about it!

Was looking for some good fish and chips and found it here...Chips are ok but fish is real good..Drinks are pricey and what I did not like was getting my bill and the waiter just hanging around waiting...Waiters should just disappear and reappear a few minutes later!

Had a fantastic lunch at this pub yesterday. The French fries were the best, made right in their kitchen. We both enjoyed the fish & chips, a very large serving so my husband ended up with an extra piece of fish. The staff is great & Jon is very friendly. Plan to eat there again before we leave.

We had the pleasure of enjoying lunch at this pub overlooking the ocean on the malecon. The owner, John Murphy was friendly, inviting and accommodating. He came and introduced himself to each member of our party and was easily engaged in conversation. Most of our party of eight ordered the fish and chips which were so fresh and delicious. John...

Who would have thought I would find an awesome Irish Pub in Puerto Vallarta, MX? Murphy's Irish Pub has great food, awesome tunes, views of the ocean, is on the boardwalk, and serves great beers. The staff is outstanding speaking both Spanish and English. I had the Fish and Chips, which were off the hook good, with a Negra Modelo... More

What a great mixture. Looking in you could be in a pub in Ireland. Turn around and your looking at the beach! They serve up great drinks with top shelf liquors. Not your average beach party bar. We were there for their New Year's Eve party which included an Irish buffet. All the food was great so I'm sure anything... More
