Irish Pub, Salzburg
We went to Murphy's Law when we just needed to speak English. It was definitely still different than home, but in the middle of a six week German course, it still had a bit of familiarity. The bartender's are talkative and nice but remember Guinness should NOT be mixed! No black and tans or the likes. They also may tell you not to speak German. The back of the bar is dug into the mountain and has a cave-like feel. Great place to watch soccer games and get a bag of REAL potato chips! (Salt and Vinegar, potato chips in Europe come in flavors like curry and tomato) There is also a large selection of Whisky and Whiskeys behind the bar. If you are staying in Salzburg a long time, be sure to get the "value card" which gives you a free beer after you buy 10.
Dress Code: Casual, be careful what soccer jersey you wear or be prepared to defend it!
Great atmosphere, usually crowded but not overly loud. Friendly staff, usually a small American crowd hanging about.
Dress Code: Casual but sometimes the doormen will stop you if you're wearing a hat or so on the weekends. They seem to like to pick and choose who to pick on as they enter.... usually it's the foreigner who doesn't speak German very well. hahah.
At first I felt guilty for going to O'Malley's while in Salzburg. Why not go to a traditional Austrian bar I thought. However, O'Malley's is one of the places I feel most comfortable to go for a night of drinking or hanging out. The bartenders at O'Malley's are wonderful and love to chat. JP (blond hair), Damien (dark hair, eyebrow ring), Alex (dark long hair and Scottish accent), and Fiona (reddish/purple) hair are the bartenders that typically work at night. If you walk in the front door, walk straight to the back and you'll find Damien or JP (who typically work the back bar). Although you might want to practice your German, make sure you don't unless it's your first language! They will refuse to serve you or make fun of you relentlessly. If you perfer to sit at the front bar, Fiona's great for chatting with and Alex is somewhat of a philosopher, he loves to smile and has a adventerous personality. All in all, O'Malley's is a great place to hang out with friends and make friends with the bartenders.
We stopped by O'Malley's Irish pub for one last beer before catching the train back to Munich. It was early Saturday evening and we had the place to ourselves though I imagine this place gets a lot busier at a later hour. Drinks are more expensive here than in other bars in the city, though as it was happy hour so we got a good deal. The Weissbier was excellent. Salzburg's other Irish pub, the Shamrock, is next door, and with many local places along the same street it seems a good area of town for going out.
Yes, we hopped from one Irish Pub to another. We met a lot of nice people here, but alas no one from Austria :( Not near as crowded as O Malley's. We ended up leaving because they I ran out of euros and they don't take credit cards until your bill is over 30 or 40 euros. So bring cash or drink a lot!

Salzburg has a great Irish Pub along the river... actually there are two almost side-by-side. We frequently hopped back and forth between the two. I liked the one furthest away from the city center the most because it wasn't as crowded and just had a better layout for drinking and talking.
Want to spend ur evening and late nights , visit any of the local pubs after a walk in Old parts of the city.Good Music and great beer for cheap prices.Not to mention the local girls are very pretty and "friendly"
Dress Code: Anything
Two Irish bars (!) located almost side-by-side. Usually people hop back and forth between the two. Shamrock has some fun live music, and fun Irish paintings on the walls. There isn't much for nightlife in this city, so it's definitely worth a look.
Dress Code: As you are.
An Irish Pub across the river, will get back to you re the name, but its the only one there so ask for the Irish Pub. There is a singer there and the atmosphere is great and there is dancing to irish music as well
Dress Code: casual
"Guiness is good for everybody"
