We have visited this establishment the last time we visited Puerto Vallarta two years ago while on a cruise. It was very nice then and it made enough of an impression to bring us back when we were on a winter vacation in Puerto Vallarta. Same place, same menu, same atmosphere, same everything. This is a delightful place for a... More

He talked to us and made us welcome. As some of us are also Murphys and we are from an area not too far from his hometown, we talked about family names,... More

This is a great place to eat, sit out on the balcony and enjoy the beautiful Malecon, good place to watch everything. It is halfway along the Malecon, upstairs, across the street from the black and white Lighthouse. The food is very good and a great variety on the menu, we have had the Irish Meat Pie and the Fish...

We were looking for something non-Mexican one night, and decided to try Murphy's. We ordered wings " extra, extra crispy" and they were delicious! We would definitely return next time we're here.

We have eaten at Murphy's Irish Pub many times over the last years. Yesterday we had a salad & split a Shepard's pie, both were fantastic- full of flavor. We also talked with John who is the owner-very personable and fun interaction. You won't be disappointed with a stop here!
