The owner tends bar and he can be quite a hoot. He will bend your ear a very long time. While you might initially think he's just an opinionated Irishman, if you listen carefully, you might conclude that he's actually relatively well versed on a...More

Murphy's Law is a great pub in the centre of Salzburg. Great to watch football, to have a few drinks or to just enjoy yourself. The staff is very nice too.

Good friendly service and food selection of Irish and Scottish whiskies. Did do try the food, and did not see anyone eating while watching the Champions league match.

Went to the Irish Pub for a few drinks to watch the English Premier League and it was a great experience. Limited places that will televise these games in Salzburg, so a must visit for a game!
