Great Irish bar

Enjoyed the people and the owners at this upstairs Irish Bar actually owned and run by John Murphy. Great cold Guinness and a warm welcome. Few people in there during our visit but we still stayed many hours and had a good time.

Like most Irish bars, they have a good selection of beer and whiskey, but what sets this place apart are the bartenders. I had the pleasure of meeting Alex and Jose last week while vacationing with my family. Those two guys know how to turn a good experience into a great one. I was there with another friend and they...

The best fish and chips ever, free pool, attentive staff! We visited twice and loved being able to eat and drink while playing pool as much as we wanted. Drinks were great and two-for-one!

As an irishman now living in the US, I convinced my wife that we should check out this Irish pub during our vacation in PV. Overall, it was not what I had hoped for. The food was average, there was no atmosphere, we were the only 2 there for dinner. They were out of the Dublin Shrimp. The Shephards Pie... More

Stopped here to get out of the heat for a while. The owner is American and is really nice. The bartender who was serving our beers, Jose was really nice too.

We stayed a full week in PVR with friends. Murphy's is a one of a kind bar and restaurant in Puerto Vallarta with an amazing view of the Banderas Bay right on the Malecon. You wont find another Irish pub in the city. It was a nice change of pace from traditional Mexican hangouts or beach bars. The interior has... More

Visiting an Irish bar in Mexico seems like an odd thing but it's not like it's a Bubba Gump or something (that's down the street. Stay away from those bars). Murphy's is owned & operated by a Irish guy from WI. I went with a local beer. A great porter from Colima, it was amazing. Definitely stop in for a... More
