Jolly Irish pubs and bars in Singapore
1. Quinn’s The Irish Tavern
We’re spoilt for choice for Irish pubs in Singapore, but you gotta make a pitstop at Quinn’s The Irish Tavern. What sets it apart is the friendly atmosphere and warm hospitality. A must-try? The Nutty Irish Men, its signature cocktail. The creamy concoction is made with Baileys, Frangelico, and smooth Jameson whiskey. If you’re feeling peckish, its menu of classic pub fare won’t disappoint. You can’t go wrong with a plate of truffle fries or golden fish fingers with your pint of beer.

2. Molly Malone’s Irish Pub
Knock back a couple of cold pints at Singapore’s oldest Irish pub. This institution, in all its warm, wood-panelled glory, has served as an authentic den of all that is Irish since 1995. It’s very much an icon along Circular Road. In addition to Guinness and Kilkenny, Molly’s offers quintessential Irish drams. Think Jameson, Tullamore Dew and Bushmills. It’s also the place for some wholesome Irish feed like beef and Guinness pie or a plate of bangers and mash.

3. The Drunken Poet
Within the monolith that is Orchard Towers lies The Drunken Poet. This Irish pub is hard to miss. Imbibe on the tavern’s draught beer cocktails. The Black Velvet (half-Guinness, half-Strongbow) and Irish Car Bomb (Guinness with Baileys) are absolute delights. After which you might just splutter out a spoken word symphony of ye own.
The Drunken Poet, #01-29C, Orchard Towers, 400 Orchard Road, Singapore 238875
4. Scruffy Murphy’s Irish Cafe-Pub
Having shifted from its original location in East Coast Park, Scruffy Murphy’s has found a new home within Pasir Panjang. It follows the theme of a cosy Irish seaside cottage. We recommend getting the big breakfast to go with the Black Velvet beer cocktail. Looking for a place to catch your favourite sports matches? Follow its social media pages and you’ll receive weekly updates about the games on show. These range from rugby and soccer to Formula 1.

5. Muddy Murphy’s
Quite literally made in Ireland, Muddy Murphy’s was built to scale in Dublin back in 1996. After being dismantled, it was shipped to Singapore for reassembly. Talk about authenticity! You bet this warm underground dig has seen its fair share of raucous Saint Paddy’s Day shindigs. The pub has since moved out of its iconic premises and is now at Claymore Connect. But don’t worry; it’s just as rustic, lived-in and lively in as the original. It’s not all about drinking here though. The shepherd’s pie, burger, and fish and chips are to die for.
Muddy Murphy’s, #01-02 to 05, Claymore Connect, 442 Orchard Road, Singapore 238879
6. McGettingan’s Clarke Quay
It’s no surprise that Singapore’s prime nightlife destination is home to this illustrious Irish import. McGettigan’s plays live broadcasts of rugby and football, so it also doubles up as a legit sports bar. But if live music is more your thing, there’s a roster of performing artists on weekends. Just take a seat and order pub grub classics like buffalo hot wings and Irish burgers to accompany your drink situation.
McGettigan’s Clarke Quay, #01-01, Merchant’s Court, 3A River Valley Road, Singapore 179020
