We have just returned from Murphys Guesthouse and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this little gem to anyone who will be staying in Killarney. Its location is perfect just on the edge of town within walking distance to everything. The room was a good size and spotless. The staff are really friendly and helpful and the music... More

I recently had the pleasure of staying at Murphys Guesthouse whilst I was away on business, I stayed in the hotel for 4 nights and was welcomed in, looked after and had the most memorable experience I think I have had in a long time. I am now looking at making a return trip and would only stay here as... More

Booked this hotel last minute and paid only €75 for a very big double room. The room was beautifully presented and very tidy. I have often stayed in hotels that weren't half as good as this and were twice the price. The lads working behind the bar were very nice and we had a great night with them. There was... More

Murphy's is a nice little guesthouse in a great location in Killarney town, within walking distance of the main streets within the town. I have stayed in the guesthouse on more than one occasion and have always been happy with the service and facilities. The only downside is the noise from the street which can be very loud at night.... More

Murphy's is in a great location if you want to enjoy the pubs of Killarney. The rooms are basic and clean, and prices are very reasonable. Breakfast was pretty good, but is served in the pub - we got to hear all the explicit details of the nearby (still) drunk college kids late night exploits!

I am trying to be nicer writing these so here goes...... The wifi was non existant. Could be an external issue but if you need or use wifi, it doesn't work! I was in a room that had some sort of a vent outside that sounded like a loud washing machine. It stopped from about two until seven. Breakfast is... More

Spent 1 night here on way through Southern Ireland, great staff and room was comfortable. Good breakfast as part of the room rate. Shower didn't work as well as I expected but the front desk said they would sort that out. Very central and close to everything, so good location. Went for a short run in the morning through the...

This place has it all. Nice rooms, traditional music every night, Guinness and a great breakfast. And Maureen at the front desk is the best. //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

We traveled around the whole of Ireland over two weeks and Murphys has it all. The room was €50 for the two adults 2 children fab and clean - we thought we were in a 5 star hotel once inside. Dinner was excellent and afterwards we joined the singing with a live traditional musician group then at 1am we just... More
