Lovely lunch stop, tasty food and great staff, especially Josh! They also had some live music on which was a nice touch.

We started here with appetizers and a few drinks, and ended up staying for dinner. There were 9 people in our party, including three younger kids, and they took great care of us. Their menu is extensive and has something for everyone. They have a great collection of Irish Whiskey!

Went in here for a few pints last night. There are several "sections" including an outdoor area, and at least two bars. Staff were friendly, drinks were not overpriced, and a few TV screens to watch the game. Did not try the food, but it looked good.

There are several dishes here that are very hard to find in most restaurants because they are very Irish/British in nature. They are well-done here and Muldoons has a great selection of items. The servers are very friendly, too. Good service and good atmosphere.

The pub has several rooms including al lively bar that often has live Irish music. There is also a patio and a quiet dining room with a beautiful fireplace. The traditional Irish menu has some surprises too. Service with the Irish welcome and wit is always friendly and helpful. Of course bangers and mash or Irish stew are our choices... More

If you want pub food, beer and atmosphere you'll feel very comfortable here in a very authentic Irish Pub. The best thing here IS the service. We were lucky to get Scott as our waiter. He has the right amount of humor, and attention to detail that one would hope for. Prices are a little on the high side but... More

Interesting menu. Has traditional Irish fare but some tasty additional menu items that give this pub an edge. I tired a combination drink with two of my favorite drinks - champagne and Guinness. Quite tasty. The bubbles take a bit of the earthy edge off the Guinness and add effervescence to the concoction. When another guest's order walked by, it... More

Celebrating nearly 40 years, Muldoon’s is the real thing. A warm generous & friendly pub with fine pub food. Situated on the corner of Southern California’s #1 shopping - financial district Fashion Island - Newport Center, Muldoon’s is known for her two pubs, outdoor courtyard and cozy Dublin dining room filled with booths and a warm fireplace. Locals call Her their “neighborhood gem” in a neighborhood filled with excellent restaurants. But, there is only one Muldoon’s. Great for lunch, dinner, Sunday brunch and private events. Muldoon’s has a lively happy hour, live music - dancing on weekends. Celebrating St. Paddy’s Day is the best! Fit for foodies and those in the know of the greatest ales, lagers beers, mean cocktails and notable wine. Muldoon’s is the home of Sindi Rae’s Dark Chocolate Pudding when she’s in the kitchen! Her Awards: Best Pub in Southern California & the OC, Best Food, Best Burgers, Best Guinness, Best Irish Coffee & Best Staff!
