This is not my favorite place. As Irish bars go I suppose it's okay. But they allow smoking inside which makes the place miserable.

I'll admit it. When I was in Ireland during my military days, Irish pubs were the preferred destination when the temperature was between 10-200F. Or it looked like the sun may shine or something. I know Irish pubs. Irish pubs were friends of mine. Murphy's...More

My husband had to visit this Irish pub, and it did not disappoint. The barmaid was attentive and talkative. She let us try various local beers on tap. We didn't try any food, but it looked tasty.

Larger bar with food just at the end of the strand. Pool tables and several games and jukebox available. They do allow smoking inside though which for no smokers is a negative. The do have an outside area that could be used for smoking.
