Description: Murphy's Irish Pub & Restaurant was the first authentic Irish pub in Jakarta, Indonesia. Opening in May 2010 Murphy's have brought a taste of Ireland to Jakarta, and expecially Kemang. Murphy's offer great food, beer ( Draught Guinness and Kilkenny ) atmosphere, music and of course some legendary Irish "Craic". Murphy's were the first bar in Jakarta to offer the very popular Draught Kilkenny, imported all the way from Ireland and was first again to introduce Draught Guinness to Jakarta. Both imported from Dublin, Ireland creating a real authentic Irish experience. Murphy's was also first bar to have a self serving Guinness table - yes Pour your own Pint at Murphy's.

Service at this place is atrocious, the food is good and I love the Guinness on tap. But u have to wait that long for service u would die of thirst. A little over priced for some items.

Thanks John for visiting Murphy's and for your positive comments relating to the food and Guinness. Obviously disappointing to hear your comments on the service. I have sent you a private message on this, but overall we are trying very hard to have a consistent customer service experience. Our staff are normally excellent but there has been lapses from time... More

The atmosphere wasn't not as 'irish' as I expected. But the food was good, and the drinks were unbelievably cheap for Kemang area and for this I will give 2 thumbs up. And if you open their website, you can book tables and order food, I never experienced something like this before and this is a good point.

I am going to be very honest with my review since I was very disappointed with the service.

Does exactly what an Irish bar should do. Good food, good drinks, great bands and a seperate section for those wanting to watch the sport. Have had many a great night here. Pull your own guinness table is a nice little perk too!

This is a nice place for the occasional beer & bite. Food quality is fine, but the menu selection is a bit limited. Since day one the bar suffers from some sort of administrative system when ordering a beer. Even with few customers and ample staff, it will take around 5-10 minutes to get your beer, something to do with... More

Murphy's offers live music, Irish beer (as well as local draughts), traditional Irish food, great staff and weekly specials for drinks.
