Singapore’s Best Irish Pubs

Malone Irish

One of the most widely celebrated festivals internationally, St. Paddy’s Day brings forth much liberation (thanks to Guinness) and hearty food—think Irish stews and Guinness potpies. Here are our pick of the best Irish pubs in Singapore where you’ll have a spanking good time. Sláinte!

Malone’s Irish Restaurant & Bar

With a menu blooming with authentic Irish specialties, it’s obvious that any diet plan will be immediately left at the door. Food wise, popular bar grub favorites include chicken wings ($8.90), beer battered onion rings ($8.90) and crispy pork belly ($9.90)—always great with beer.

Signatures like the Jimmy Malones ribs ($24.90) leave no room for midnight cravings—half rack of tender pork ribs glazed with a sweet and spicy sauce, served with a side of green peas and classic Irish colcannon mashed potatoes with cabbage. On tap ($12.50), get drunk on your poison of choice: Archipelago Belgian Wit, Archipelago Summer Ale, Archipelago Bohemian Lager, Tiger, Heineken, Kilkenny, and Guinness.

Molly Malone

Molly Malone’s Irish Pub

Singapore’s first Irish pub, Molly Malone’s stands proud after nearly two decades of serving hearty Irish delights (and getting people drunk on a good time). One of the reasons why we love Irish pubs is their modest bar grub: scotch eggs ($8) and hot and spicy wings ($12). If you’re hungry, pad down your stomach with Irish stew ($18)—the lamb is braised to tenderness, literally melting in the mouth.

Wash it down with Irish whiskies: Bushmills old Irish original ($12), Bushmills single malt 10 years (both $12), or John Jameson ($14). If you’re more of a beer kind of person, Irish labels like Guinness ($13.50) and Kilkenny ($13.50) are also available on tap. There’s also live music Wednesdays to Saturdays from 9pm.

Molly Roffeys

Molly Roffey’s Irish Pub

There aren’t many pubs in Singapore that manage to make a good slab of tender, succulent barbeque ribs, but we’ve found one. The barbeque ribs ($18.80 per half slab; $26.80 per full slab) at Molly Roffey’s are marinated overnight in a sweet homemade barbeque sauce that’s simply mouthwatering—we recommend opting for the full slab. It’s a well-known fact that the best pairing for barbeque ribs is beer, so we reckon you’d enjoy it best while you’re knocking back a chilled mug of Erdinger Dunkel ($18) or Kilkenny ($17).

Traditional Irish cocktails such as the bloody molly (Bushmill original, Tabasco sauce, Worcestershire, pepper, salt and tomato juice; $15) and Irish car bomb (Jameson Irish whiskey, Bailey’s Irish cream and stout) are also available—great as a post-dinner tipple.

Muddy Murphy

Muddy Murphy’s Irish Pub

Carved into the doorframe, this was the first thing we spotted: “licensed to sell beer, wines and spirits 7 days a week” (read: licensed to get you drunk 7 days a week). With 17 varieties of beer available (including English ale Old Speckled Hen and Strongbow cider on tap), it’s no wonder this watering hole seems to be constantly living it up.

Not forgetting its extensive list of over 40 spirits (not counting liqueurs) and more than 30 cocktails (from $15) and shooters (from $13), you know you’re in trouble here. Fun trouble. One of the rowdiest Irish pubs, Muddy Murphy’s is well known for making merry. Having said that, apart from crazy tipples, they also serve an Irish farmhouse breakfast ($15) made up of Harris sausages, crispy back bacon, eggs, mushrooms, rosti potatoes, baked beans, grilled tomato and fried bread, and a weekly Sunday roast (11:30am-4pm; from $20).
