Murphy’s Bar

Murphy’s is a true local pub, firmly rooted in Old Galway. This is a pub where you really will enjoy your pint of Guinness.
Philip Murphy (1892 – 1995) acquired this premises in November 1931 on his return from America and ran it as a pub which also sold groceries and bacon in the early days. He ran the pub over the years with the help of his wife Delia and his children, Paddy and Mary. The pub licence remained in the name of Philip Murphy until 1995 when he died at the age of 103. Since then Paddy Murphy has been running the pub and he, along with his children, ensure that the Murphy name is still very much part of the business today. As you enter, the door greets you with “Fáilte Isteach”. That’s an Irish welcome, a Galway welcome, a Murphy’s welcome. The relaxed atmosphere and friendly chat are hallmarks of this premises and it’s because of this that it has become so very popular with many locals and visitors. Murphy’s is enriched by the many and varied characters who have been frequenting this establishment for decades. During the latest reupholstering of bar-stools, one customer expressed his preference for the older soft tops and so it’s easy now to spot Dennis’s bar-stool. Past social trips and special occasions involving patrons and staff are recalled by various photographs on the walls and when you hear the friendly staff greeting many customers by name, you know you have found a true local pub. That’s Murphy’s.

Profile Description

One of Galway’s oldest and best known pubs, Murphy’s Bar has been a family pub for 3 generations.
Situated at 9 High Street, one of the oldest parts of Galway City, Murphy’s retains the character of yesteryear.

Its reputation for serving great Guinness contributes to its huge popularity and may explain how the pub can boast customers spanning five generations. When you push open the door and see a line of creamy pints along the counter – you know you have found a good Guinness pub.

The friendly staff greet many customers by name, always a good sign in a pub. The walls are full of photos of past social trips by patrons and staff, giving the pub a homely, down-to-earth feel.

Senior citizens enjoy special concessions, and their pithy comments, wry observations and general banter with the staff, contribute to this pub’s unique atmosphere. It is a true ‘local’ and a companionable retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city streets.
