Description: Murphy's Irish Pub & Restaurant was the first authentic Irish pub in Jakarta, Indonesia. Opening in May 2010 Murphy's have brought a taste of Ireland to Jakarta, and expecially Kemang. Murphy's offer great food, beer ( Draught Guinness and Kilkenny ) atmosphere, music and of course some legendary Irish "Craic". Murphy's were the first bar in Jakarta to offer the very popular Draught Kilkenny, imported all the way from Ireland and was first again to introduce Draught Guinness to Jakarta. Both imported from Dublin, Ireland creating a real authentic Irish experience. Murphy's was also first bar to have a self serving Guinness table - yes Pour your own Pint at Murphy's.

“Great Place for a couple of beers , great atmosphere I Liked it”
Reviewed October 11, 2011

I have been to many irish pub in my travels , i really liked this one
went three days in a row just for a couple of relaxing beers
the first night admittedly it was a little bit smokey for my liking but i tried it again and it was no issue, didnt get to try any of the food next time i will try it for sure
i found the prices were very good and the atmosphere was nice
The owner Killian Murphy seems like a nice guy i just had a brief chat with him one afternoon before i went back to the Shangri-LA
i would reccomend this to anyone that likes cold beer...
they have flat screen tv with sports (English Soccer) when i was there which is a bonus
Sports & Cold Beer = Heaven

“more locals”
Reviewed May 20, 2011

seems that the owners aiming to have more locals than expats, i saw more locals on my last visit with "deafening" indonesian live band. definitely not going back.

Hi Juvens, sorry for late response - only learning to use this now....I understand you visited us a couple of years back....We definitely did have some issues with our bands and sound system - but I would love for you to try us now....we actually only have Live music on weekends but the bands are really good and sound is better.....plus we have sound proof wall now - so right side of pub is quieter when band is on.....Your welcome to drop back in....just ask for Killian.....Best wishes. Killian Murphy

“Typical "American Style" Irish Pub in Jakarta”
Reviewed March 21, 2011

This place reminds me of many Irish themed pubs that I have visited in the States. You won't think you have been transported to Dublin, but it is nice, clean place to enjoy a beer and a bite to eat in pleasant surroundings. I was actually there this past St. Patrick's Day and the place was packed. The owner went all out with a live band playing traditional Irish music, as well as modern tunes. Step dancers were brought in from Ireland to add to the celebration.
I only had the fish and chips, but it was exceptionally good. I just wish they had a bottle of malt vinegar which would have made it even more enjoyable.
All in all, Murphy's Pub is a must visit if you are in the mood for a pint in Jakarta.

“A taste or Ireland in Indonesia”
Reviewed December 23, 2010

I have recently arrived in Jakarta and have been going to a few bars and restaurants to get a lay of the land. Murphys was by far one of the best places to go if not the best.

The place has a real authentic Irish feel and the owner Killian Murphy (yes he's really Irish) remembered my name after the first visit and seems to have a knack of making you feel really welcome. The food is substantial and on my last visit I had the Shepherds pie and it was as authentic as I have ever tried elsewhere.

Also unlike other places it has a really good mix of locals and expats which makes it a lot different to other places which has one or the other. For this reason there does seem to be a nice balanced ambience.

If you need a western meal in Jakarta and a few welcoming faces this is the the place to go!
