Scruffy Murphy’s Hotel

Scruffy Murphy’s Hotel is ideal spot to call in for refreshments close to the heart of Sydney action. It has that genuine feel of Ireland for locals and visitors alike; warm and welcoming.

There are four bars and there is every chance you will be served by someone with an Irish accent. The Main Bar, the Goose Garden Restaurant and the Golden Dragon VIP Lounge are busy at all times with the Vault Nightclub opening for late visitors three nights a week, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday.

Visitors can enjoy top DJs, the latest music and a great light show. Whether you want a pint of Guinness, cider, lager, wines or spirits you will be drinking in a wonderful atmosphere. Tourist accommodation nearby is plentiful and can be booked by any of the local Sydney travel agencies – e.g. and are some of the better ones.

There is always something going on with a mix of clientele. City workers rub shoulders with tourists on a family holiday, backpackers travelling around Australia and locals coming into the centre of the city for a day out. Darling Harbour, the Railway Stations and Paddy’s Market are all close by.

Upstairs in the Goose Garden Bistro meals begin with breakfast and throughout the day there was snacks, burgers, pasta and salads. Typical of many places in Sydney the seafood is excellent.  Once food has finished for the day guests can relax and watch live sports action on the big screen coming via dedicated sports channels such as Fox, ESPN and Setanta. Choices will range for rugby to Gaelic football, something for everyone.

There is a diary of events throughout each month, some featured regularly and other specials. There is always a good reason to drop into Scruffy Murphy’s.
