Spending St. Patrick’s Day in Phuket? Phuket is actually home to a number of Irish pubs, and all of them host some type of celebration on St. Patrick’s Day. Whether you want to join in the party or just have a beer and wear green, these pubs won’t disappoint.

Angus & Arfur O’Tool’s

O’Tool’s has one of the best beer selections in town, both bottled and tap. They are also one of the few places in Phuket to offer draught Kilkenny and Blackthorn. In a festive mood? Beer is sold by the pint, bottle or bucket.

Scruffy Murphy’s

Scruffy Murphy’s on Patong Beach is the most “Irish” of all the pubs in Phuket, at least when it comes to décor and ambiance. There’s live music every day at 10 pm –If you come around on St. Patrick’s Day, you’ll even get to enjoy some traditional Irish music! Try some of their traditional English/Irish food (kitchen is open until 11:30pm) or try their popular Magners Irish Cider.

Molly Malones

Molly Malones is a favorite among expats, who come here to watch sports events in the large flat screen TVs. Malones is also one of the only places in town where you’ll find Irish stew (a great dish to try on St. Patrick’s), or try one of their cold beers on draught.  Live music every night after 10 pm.
