The Craic House – Irish Pub & Restaurant

craic house malapascua evolution diving

The Craic House is the best bar on Malapascua, no ifs, buts or maybes.

It’s an Irish pub on a Filipino beach, or a Filipino pub with warm Irish hospitality and a Celtic commitment to fun and frivolity. You choose.

We play the best music anywhere for miles and our 10,000+ song selection has something for every mood. We avoid playing the current top 40 hits, and anything which is on repeat in a teens music collection is definitely not going to be heard in our bar and restaurant.

By the time you reach us, you’ll know what we’re talking about. We’ll help create the soundtrack for your holiday and if we’re not getting it quite right just make a request with our friendly bar staff.

Most importantly The Craic House has gained a solid reputation for its service orientated philosophy and tasty original food. Our guests continue to rate us in high regard on trip advisor and we constantly strive to innovate and keep up with the ever changing trends and dietary needs of the current global traveler.
