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. Re- shower, there was nothing I could do about it at the time but offer... More

We stayed at Murphy's Farmhouse during a recent trip through Ireland. WE found it to be an awesome experience for us and for our teenaged kids. The Farmhouse was clean, comfortable and had a lot of charm. The heat worked very well and the showers were excellent. It was one of the most comfortable B&Bs that we stayed at in... More

Nice B & B on the way to the airport from Dingle. Great location, clean, and comfortable. Just off the main road, it is quiet and makes for relaxed setting. Warm breakfast menu had several choices and was cooked to order. Petrol station was just up the way, so we could fill before returning rental car.

Mary Murphy met us at the door with a great smile and offer for tea and conversation. She listened graciously as we responded to her inquiry about what we had planned for our trip. We decided to eat close by, and had a very nice/quiet dinner at the Anchor Inn / Pub which was only 2 minutes away. Mary could... More

The farmhouse is wonderful, the decore is superb, and Mary Murphy is a very charming lady :) She gave us tips on where to eat, what to see, and we appreciated it very much. The location is excellent for exploring the Dingle peninsula, and there is a wonderful beach only 15 minutes drive away. Would recommend! :)
