What can I say. Good guinness and good food. Lots to choose from, and good amount of food given. Lively place with a good atmosphere. Popular with tourists

Excellent beer selection and they pour the Guinness to perfection. Have all the yak varieties and the lunch schnitzel burger was excellent. Went again for a drink in the early evening and listened to live music and had a great time.

The bar staff would have to be the worst I have ever experienced. Not one but all three Sunday 20th November. Really how do these people keep a job, if they ever went to Ireland they would know how to work a bar... Indifferent, rude, slow, people lined up for drinks and these useless staff are chatting to themselves. Beside... More

Highly recommend Sunday Sessions at Irish Murphy's. Either Mick McHugh or Mark Butner. Fantastic Irish singers and musos. Very entertaining and very engaging with their audience. They play a range of instruments, from guitar, to harmonica, to the Irish fiddle and/or mandolin. Lots of laughs and hand clapping and foot tapping.

Good location and old style Irish Bar. Beer selection was good and had reasonable wine list. The menu was limited but looked good if you wanted a snack to go with your pint.

Go to get a drink of Kilkenny that I had been paying $8 for all night, then all of a sudden charges $9. I asked what the correct price was and the other barperson stated it was $8. I told her I had been overcharged and she said she had no idea. Just because it's alcohol and not food does... More

Zac S, Public Relations Manager at Irish Murphy's, responded to this review

Hi there Lupe! There seems to be a touch of confusion here and for that we apologise! Kilkenny is indeed $8 until 9pm, at which time it raises to night prices ($8.50) Either way, it would appear the bar tender has given you an incorrect coin. We are disappointed that you were left to felt that if you pursued this... More

Stopped by this wee gem on our quick visit to Brissy. Guinness Pie blew my mind! Best meal ive had in Australia. Struggled to finish it but washed it down with a beautiful pint of Kilkenny! Great live music with a very talented young man named Woody on a Tuesday night. Bar and wait staff were cheerful and seemed to... More

Four of us met for lunch here on a Friday and although a fairly busy day, our meals were delivered quite quickly. We all chose something different and each enjoyed the fresh, well cooked, delicious variety. Well priced, good choices and tasty.
