Just returned from Ireland. Only had one night at the farm, but it was warm and welcoming.We arrived late (11:30 pm) and Mrs. Murphy was waiting up for us. Made sure the kettle had water for a late night cup of tea. Breakfast in the morning was yummy, especially the scones. I could have eaten the entire plate of them.... More

Upon arrival you will be greeted by Mrs. Murphy, a lovely lady who has run the bnb for the better part of 60 years. She will also be the one cooking your breakfast (we asked other members of the Murphy house, she says she loves it and would not have it any other way! Of course, there are many daughters,... More

It was a great surprise to turn down the main road and find Murphy's Farmhouse. The rooms were very comfortable (small bathroom but fine!) - with lovely views of the fields, great linens, all things good. The breakfast was delicious. The family was very nice. It was just fabulous. And a very good value. Loved it!

I visited with my partner and parents. We had a large room, which was very nice with a single and double bed and a room with a larger washroom with a double bed. All of us slept well. Breakfast was okay but there was a tour group mini-van staying too (so it felt less intimate than the other b&bs) and... More

On the way to Dingle this farm house sits on a small country road just behind Murphy's pub. Mrs Murphy is the best hostess. She called around town to find us an open restaurant for dinner. The room was large and comfortable. We had a king bed and a twin for my daughter, plus a sitting room, a vanity and... More

Murphys farmhouse was more expensive than other options so we thought it would at least be standard quality. Food was great, but beds and bathrooms were bad. We did not get what we were quoted for on the phone and were one bed short. also the 'double' bed was tiny and rock hard and only suitable for 1. ( 4'... More

Murphy’s Farmhouse is, as its name indicates, a renovated farmhouse, located in a quiet location set back from the highway heading to and from the Dingle Peninsula. Our room was clean, quiet and comfortable with a modern bathroom, but……when I went to take a shower, I could get no water to flow. After running out of ideas about how to... More

A lovely homely B&B with 3 generations of the Murphy Family between the Farmhouse and Murphys's Bar. Very helpful and a nice place to base yourself for a couple of days of sightseeing around Kerry. A freshly prepared breakfast each day, fresh pastries, eggs and bacon stocked us up for the day. Visit the cows out the back in the... More

I recently stayed at Murphy's with a posse of family members - we occupied 4 rooms total, and it was great! The rate is very agreeable and the owner, Mrs. Murphy, couldn't be more hospitable or charming. And she's a great cook! Breakfast was one of the best we had on our trip. Down the street the pub (also named... More

Our stay at Murphy's was almost fantastic. The room was comfortable, the breakfast was delicious, and the staff was very friendly. Unfortunately, a couple of key things went awry and made our stay much less than it could have been. First, the wireless internet was unreliable at best, and was not working for the entirety of one evening/night. While this... More

Glad you enjoyed your stay with us! It's a shame you didn't tell us about the Internet connection until you put it on trip advisor we didn't know about it, I have asked all the other guests about it and they're all happy with it.
