Nice Irish Pub in Erlangen. Good selection of both Irish and German Beers. I love Guinness and and Kilkenny. But to find Redbreast, Green Spot and Yellow Spot single Pot still whiskey is a real treat. Enjoyed the Guinness and Beef Pie. Savored a glass of Green Spot after my Guinness.Nice place to hang out with friends.

The portions are in sync with the prices. The various... More

I only went in here for a drink and was very impressed with the whisky selection here, the biggest selection I have seen in a bar so far, the whole wall behind the bar seemed to be covered in whisky. My biggest regret about this place is that I was only in here on the last day of the trip,... More

Drinks: A wide range of beers, wines, liquors, and tall drinks. Service: Very friendly and quick. The servers speak fluent English and keep a sharp eye on the bar. Food: Pretty straight forward pub grub. I can only speak for the Guinness pie and the baked potato. My only complaint would be that they may have needed a bit more... More

Murphy's is a long established Irish pub in Erlangen and very enjoyable. It is actually owned by Irish people who know how to run a pub. They have good food, good beer and a cross section of popular activities associated with the pub scene such as a pub quiz. A good Irish Pub in a land where there are many... More

The other evening I was so hungry and after a disappointing stop at another Irish pub, I came to M-law. Food is definitely reliable. Can eat here amd be sure to be satisfied. Well done and a BIG thank you to the staff. Atmosphere was a little slow but this is to be expected mid week. Well return again!

We had a wonderful time in this authentic Irish pub, right opposite a truly German one. Awesome beer, great company and a chilly winter evening. That's life, don't you think?
