Celebrating nearly 40 years, Muldoon’s is the real thing. A warm generous & friendly pub with fine pub food. Situated on the corner of Southern California’s #1 shopping - financial district Fashion Island - Newport Center, Muldoon’s is known for her two pubs, outdoor courtyard and cozy Dublin dining room filled with booths and a warm fireplace. Locals call Her their “neighborhood gem” in a neighborhood filled with excellent restaurants. But, there is only one Muldoon’s. Great for lunch, dinner, Sunday brunch and private events. Muldoon’s has a lively happy hour, live music - dancing on weekends. Celebrating St. Paddy’s Day is the best! Fit for foodies and those in the know of the greatest ales, lagers beers, mean cocktails and notable wine. Muldoon’s is the home of Sindi Rae’s Dark Chocolate Pudding when she’s in the kitchen! Her Awards: Best Pub in Southern California & the OC, Best Food, Best Burgers, Best Guinness, Best Irish Coffee & Best Staff!

Dinner with friends

We started here with appetizers and a few drinks, and ended up staying for dinner. There were 9 people in our party, including three younger kids, and they took great care of us. Their menu is extensive and has something for everyone. They have a great collection of Irish Whiskey!

We were searching for a place to play darts in Newport Beach. This location came up as one of two pubs with darts. It seems like the sport is not very common in la-la land but the bar tender went out of his way to make room for us to play at the boards. The food was delicious burgers cooked... More

Went in here for a few pints last night. There are several "sections" including an outdoor area, and at least two bars. Staff were friendly, drinks were not overpriced, and a few TV screens to watch the game. Did not try the food, but it looked good.

There are several dishes here that are very hard to find in most restaurants because they are very Irish/British in nature. They are well-done here and Muldoons has a great selection of items. The servers are very friendly, too. Good service and good atmosphere.

The pub has several rooms including al lively bar that often has live Irish music. There is also a patio and a quiet dining room with a beautiful fireplace. The traditional Irish menu has some surprises too. Service with the Irish welcome and wit is always friendly and helpful. Of course bangers and mash or Irish stew are our choices... More
