Durty Nelly's Irish Pub

Pouring fresh beers in Perth since 1998, Durty Nelly’s is the definition of a traditional Irish pub in Perth – something that others live up to. Designed and constructed in Ireland by Irish architects, this rustic pub was made with genuine Irish materials — including the dark wooden benches and table which was then transported to Perth from across the seas. Durty Nelly’s is the perfect place to catch up with friends and family over a cold brew and fresh Beef & Guinness Pie.
