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.

Still a good Pub to visit and a jump into Ireland, with the lovely people of Indonesia

I returned to Jakarta (from Balikpapan) for a few days business. A part of the decision process for where to stay depends upon the good places to go at night and, Murphy's in Kemang helped me to decide to stay in Kemang, just a few meters from Murphy's.

This place could be the highlight of everyone's weekend but despite the location in Kemang (biggest ex-pat area) and lovely decor, well laid out the food and service was disappointing to say the least.

You would never know you are in Indonesia when at Murphy's - it's a nice escape and good fun if you are looking for some Irish stout and a good time with friends. Very casual.

Good mix of people go here & the staff are honest & look after you. Gets very full when they have the rugby or the Irish band playing. Food can be good but sometimes not great - its the food they need to work on . If you want a night out in 'western' type bar go here or the... More

I like the happy hours here ! Beer is cheap and great Guinness - its also a very safe place for western people & women to drink in ! Not all bars in Indonesia are 'safe' they put illegal booze in the gin & vodka bottles etc and can threaten you physically. This bar is managed by professional western staff... More
