“Real pub grub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Set in a historic building in Ballarat's hub, this is a good place to experience Australian pub life. Great atmosphere, huge portions, perfectly cooked - we sampled the chickeb parma and the guiness pie. Full marks for both. Service - quick and friendly and relatively easy on the wallet (pocketbook) too.

“Always warm, inviting and casual”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Irish Murphy's is a typical Irish pub in Aus. The staff are always friendly, the meals are consistent and hearty and the atmosphere is always lively and warm. On the weekends live music starts in the evening....this can sometimes be a bit loud if you're eating, but otherwise ok.

We go there when we're looking for a yummy meal out without the fuss and a guinness to go with it. If you are going in on a weekend, it pays to book because they are always pretty busy.
