“Great atmosphere and so accommodating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014

This is the 2nd time to puerto Vallarta and the 2nd time visiting Murphy's Irish pub. The first time we went here my battery camera was dying and I needed to have it plugged in, the waitress heard us talking about it and. Came over and asked if she could plug it in for us behind the bar while we had a beer and some food. The owner was also in the bar and came over introduced himself, chatted with us for some time and he even served us drinks as well. The food was very good, and the service was amazing.
We returned to puerto Vallarta again this year and knew we had to return to Murphy's, this time circumstances were a little different my husband who is a HUGE Seahawks fan was fretting about where we could watch the game this was a pretty big game, So We decided to try Murphy's just to check if by chance they had the game on. Unfortunately they didn't but when we walked in and sat down the waiter came over my husband asked if they could turn the game on for us. Long story short the owner happened to be at the bar again and came over and said I will see what I can do. Well he placed a 42 inch TV on the stage for us, set up a table In front of it and found the game on the Canadian satellite for us. We had dinner and drinks and watched the Seahawks win at Murphy's. I absolutely love Murphy's and will be returning there every year. If you have a chance stop in enjoy!

“Good place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2014 via mobile

Great drink prices, great happy hour. Cool place, would love to come at night when it's packed and lively, but for our visit, it was great. We're on a cruise, and leaving internet, so the free WiFi at this place was icing on the cake. Come prepared to be anti social, surfing the web while having some great mixed drinks. Cheap but good food, and great views of the ocean and beach. 5 star for sure.

“Very Welcoming Atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

We couldn't pass up the opportunity to vist an Irish pub in Puerto Vallarta. Although we were there during a slow part of the day, we were made to feel very welcome by the friendly staff. Lunch was delicious (especially the fresh cut fries upon which I sprinkled lots of malt vinegar) and people-watching from the balcony over the Malecon was a most pleasant way to while a few hours. We even bought a few t-shirts for friends back home. Will definitely come back to Murphy's Irish Pub the next time we are in PV.

A great Irish Pub for drinks, food and friends. Spending the winter here it's been a great home away from home. Come and enjoy the good time!
