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

This was our second visit to Murphy's on our vacation. The first night was a great time with the staff and the last time, we met the owner, Jon Murphy. What a coincidence! He and his team were very obliging. The food was hot and tasty, the beer cold and good. I am sure we will stop in at least... More

We really enjoyed our visit. It was nice to find a pint of Guinness in the heart of a bustling city. A few people miss this bar as it’s upstairs only and has a balcony looking over one of the streets. Definitely worth a special trip, (in my view). The staff were great. They had a promotions team in pushing... More

After walking in the intense heat of Puerto Vallarta's Old Town, it was a relief to sit in the cool, dark-paneled osais that is Murphy's Irish Pub, and look out into the splendor of Banderas Bay, then look again at the flushed, sunburned faces of my family. Murphy's has Mexican beer on draft, which in my experience, is a rarity... More

I loved running into an Irish bar in Mexico. Owner could not have been more welcoming, I would definitely recommend making a stop at this spot if you are on the Malecon, great location, great view - phenomenal staff!
