I have three bars that know me by name. This one happens to be more than a thousand miles from home. Jon and Alex always take care of me and everyone else. Not to mention it is right on the Malecon over looking the ocean. Live classic music Thursday through Saturday. Never miss stopping here on my trips To Puerto... More

Strolled into this bar one night and meet the most amazing bartender named Jose Mendoza and sat and chatted with him for hours. This is a really cute bar and although it was too hot I couldn't help but stay because of this amazing man. Thanks Jose for a remarkable night.

For all you tourists, Irish, American or otherwise, don't miss this spot of you're in PV. John Murphy is a gent and a perfect host and this bar is a little home away from home and wonderful pit-stop for drinks. Can't speak to the food but if it's half as good as the hospitality; by all means. Enjoy! Can't recommend... More

Let me start this review by stating that I am picky. I am picky because I am a foodie and I love Irish pubs. I have been to Irish pubs across the United States and have experienced some amazing food and brew. I really didn't expect Murphy's to live up to some of the great places I have been, but... More

Stopped by out of curiosity and were so blown away by the incredible food, huge variety of micro-beers and attentive, helpful staff that we ended up having dinner here 4 times during our 2 week vacation! Jose (Mendoza) and others were so helpful in selecting the right beer and recommending their favorite dishes. Welcoming environment and super clean bath rooms.... More

Stopped in here twice with my husband on our honeymoon- we loved the service, conversations, and the Jameson. Jose Mendoza and Juan treated us like family. We can't wait to come back. Try the El Terrible cider brewed in PV.

We were on a cruise with my sister and her husband. We spent the day walking around the area. Glad we found this place. Had a few beers. And hung out for quite awhile. Met the owner--a really nice guy who came down to Mexico from the States with his dad to start this business. He had been in the... More

My husband and I stopped by on a whim after seeing their sign for an Irish pub in Puerto Vallarta. Being fans of Irish pubs we couldn't help but check it out. Jose, the manager, was so amazingly friendly and made us feel right at home on an early Sunday evening. Jose informed us that they have live music all... More
