Overview

It didn't start with a bang nor with a flash from above, no, the story of our very own Irish Pub O'Malley's begins on a Friday evening at the end of winter in March 1994. The doors did open and the beer did flow... "Continual cheerfulness is a sign of wisdom" Now, over twenty years later, we try and keep the same standards of cosiness, happiness and quality service, albeit on a bigger scale. With live music most weeks, a very relaxed setting, friendly staff and the city's greatest selection of beers and ciders (over 100 different types and counting), we are proud of what we have accomplished! "May the roof above us never fall in and may the friends beneath it never fall out" Our beloved watering hole has seen an expansion in recent times... We are now proud to boast our club side where you can get those bums shaking on the dancefloor, to the backdrop of old and new classic tunes spun by our resident DJ's, or the opportunity to just sit and chill out and be with friends... The pub remains the same, beers and ciders flow, accompanied by rock, soul, blues and of course some good old Irish music. Those wanting to "exercise" while they sink their responsibly consumed beverages may play pool, darts, air hockey or one of our many board games. We also have O'Malley's Sauna, big enough for up to 30 people, complete with swimming pool. Contact us to arrange a visit. "Count your joys instead of your woes, count your friends instead of your foes" So come and join us for a few and then perhaps a few more and bring friends because you should enjoy good times with good company... Open everyday from 3pm. until late! Sláinte.

Quite run down. Lousy service, unfriendly and homophobic. They could not even make proper Cuba Libre!

When the weather is dark and cold in Vaasa, I and my girl friends decided to go out for having a good time with a nice life music at the PUB.

This is the place where to start the evening. Good variety of drinks and beers but sometimes you won't get the real Napue Gin because of the lack of rosemary. The staff is friendly but the dance music is far way too old.

Great pub with a good atmosphere. Friendly landlord/manager (Glen) and his staff (English speaking) all work well together and do well to keep up with heavy demand at times, especially at weekends. Massive choice of beers. Try the local 'Bocks IPA', but go steady with...More
