Came with my wife, only had a drink but the menu looked spot on traditional English/Irish dishes and the ambiance was spot on just like an Irish pub in Spain.

We hosted our rehearsal dinner at Murphy Irish Pub. Everything from the service to the location was perfect for such a special occasion. The location on the Malecon was amazing. It is centrally located that allowed our guests to enjoy the downtown before and after dinner if they cared to. We even got to watch the sunset on the ocean... More

One of my favorite places in Mexico, I love sitting on the balcony, listening to good music & enjoying the view. It's a great location to watch people make large detailed sand castles.

I love this bar, they speak good English, have great food, great service. I come here every time I come to Puerto Vallarta and it never disappoints! Alex Noah and Daniel are the best bartenders, they are friendly and helpful and honestly hilarious. I love this place and recommend everyone that visits Puerto Vallarta to give this bar a try!...
