Guinness, beef pies, and Irish stew – the Irish really do know how to party! Here’s some Irish pubs in Singapore for a good time.
Whether it’s a bar where people watch sports and or break into embarrassing impromptu karaoke sessions, one sort of pub that is universally well-loved and can be found in almost every major city is the Irish pub. A place where you can score bottomless drinks, indulge in a tall glass of Guinness or tuck into classic pub grub… sound like your idea of a great time? We found the Irish pubs in Singapore where you don’t have to wait until St. Patrick’s Day to party…
McGettigan’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 of your thing, there’s a roster of performing artists for Friday and weekend nights. Remember to order pub grub classics like buffalo hot wings and the Irish burger to go along with your drink situation.
McGettigan’s Clarke Quay, #01-01 Merchant’s Court, 3A River Valley Rd, Singapore 179020
Molly Malone’s Irish Pub
Knock back a couple of cold pints of stout while taking in live Irish music 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 for over two decades. In addition to Guinness and Kilkenny, Molly’s offers quintessential Irish drams like Jameson, Tullamore Dew and Bushmills. It’s also the place for some wholesome Irish feed like Guinness beef stew or a plate of bangers and mash.
Molly Malone’s Irish Pub and Brasserie, 56 Circular Road, Singapore 049411
Molly Roffey’s Irish Pub
Order up those plates of bangers and mash and Guinness oxtail pie at this homely Irish pub that has drinking deals for certain game nights and ladies nights. If you really can’t get enough of your Guinness, sink your forks into Molly Roffey’s signature chocolate Guinness cake which pairs really well with – you guessed it – another pint of Guinness.
Molly Roffey’s Irish Pub, various locations
Quite literally made in Ireland, Muddy Murphy’s was built to scale in Dublin 19 years ago, dismantled, and shipped to Singapore where it was reassembled at its first location at the basement of Orchard Hotel Shopping Arcade. This dingy but warm underground dig has seen its fair share of raucous Saint Paddy’s Day shindigs and hectic live gigs. The pub has since moved out of its iconic premises and now settled at Claymore Connect, but don’t worry about the new venue; it’s just as rustic, lived-in and lively in as the original. It’s not all about drinking here though; the traditional Sunday Roast here is to die for!
Muddy Murphy’s, 442 Orchard Road, #01-02 to 05 Claymore Connect, Singapore 238879
The Drunken Poet
Tucked within the monolith that is Orchard Towers, this Irish pub promises that you “won’t have to recite a limerick to be served”. But who knows? Get blissfully intoxicated on this tavern’s draught beer cocktails – the Black Velvet (half-Guinness, half-Strongbow) and Irish Car Bomb (Guinness with Baileys) – and you might just splutter out a spoken word symphony of ye own. We also screen live sports games here so get psyched for some rowdy football nights!
