Irish Oasis

Wonderful Irish Oasis with a beautiful view of the ocean. Bartenders were extremely friendly. We loved it so much we visited more than once on our trip!

We discovered a great Newfie duo playing Celtic music. Matt and Dave are skilled musicians and worth a listen to. They play from 8-10 we'd. Through Saturday and are seasonal so phone to check if they are still in town. Another band comes on about 11. The staff are very friendly. The groups we were with had mixed reviews on... More

If you are looking for good food, a great atmosphere, combined with a perfect view of the ocean and the main boardwalk, I highly recommend Murphy's Irish Pub in Puerto Vallarta. Tucked away on the Malecon, up a narrow flight of stairs, it's easy to miss if you blink. But if you are lucky enough to find it, you won't... More

We've been to Murphy's before and really enjoyed the food. That being said on St. Patrick's Day we went and although the music was great and the atmosphere fun evidently they don't know how to make Irish coffee(cold with a shot of something nasty) and the food at the buffet was dried out and pretty disgusting. We might go again... More

You would not expect to find an excellent Irish pub in a Mexican resort town, but right on the Malecon by the lighthouse with great views of the Bay, you walk one flight up to the pub and you find excellent Irish food -- the Shepherd's Pie and Irish Stew are top drawer. The beer is great, service good and... More

The bar is upstairs, small and with a stage opposite the bar. The staff was very helpful & friendly. Cover band that was playing the night we went was great. The clientele seemed to be pretty spread out, too. Americans, Mexicans, Canadians... No smoking inside of the bar but they have a stair well where you can go. I would... More

Went with some family and friends for a late night cover band on a Saturday night!! The rock cover band was absolutely amazing and made for a super fun night. The servers were great but all the girls in our group had very weak cocktails. The guys drinks were fine so we ended up rotating drinks every now and then.
