""Traditional Irish"" Top 5 Page for this destination Pubs & Nightclubs Tip by Marpessa
Pubs & Nightclubs, Geelong: 11 reviews and 7 photos
I already have a tip for Irish Murphy's in my 'restaurant tips', but decided to split it as it is both a restaurant and a pub and the two sections do have different 'atmospheres' (although both are Irish). :)
The whole interior of Irish Murphy's is decorated as a 'traditional Irish' pub (note the word 'traditional'). There are signs in gaelic, posters for guinness and a few of Geelong's local Irish population hanging about. But the bar has a warm and cosy feel to it, and on Friday and Saturday nights the place is pretty well packed.
There is often live music acts (sometimes just doing covers), one of my friends has played a few gigs here. It is a nice pub to come to, especially since it seems to be the only place in Geelong where I can find Bulmers (alcoholic cider drinks - absolutely lovely!). It also has any other Irish drink (Bailey's, Guinness, etc.) that you might want, as well as a nice assortment of shots like: Pancake and Cowboy. There are also packets of chips and peanuts if you feel a bit hungry as well.
(Note: do not have two pints of Bulmers and then a shot of Pancake, I did and it *really* was not a good combination).
The crowd that hangs out at Irish Murphy are all ages, people in their 20s up to people in their 60s or sometimes 70s. So take a bunch of friends and check it out and see if you like it.
Over the weekend it is usually open till midnight-1am.
Dress Code: There is no need to dress up, casual is fine.
Address: 30 Aberdeen St.
Directions: It is a short walk out of the city centre (and not really near other 'nightlife' spots in Geelong). 10-15 mins walking west of Moorabool St (2 mins by car).
