We stayed here for 2 nights in our trek across Ireland. The room was very cozy and it was a very nice setup. We didn't see any other guests the entire time we were there. The only complaint I would have is that there didn't seem to be anyone around. We didn't actually need anything, so it wasn't a bother,... More

We had a room with three beds which was very clean and surprisingly spacious. We just stayed one night and started our trip to the Dingle peninsula after a nice breakfast. The best part is the nice family. We felt very welcome there.

Lovely little place to stay. Rooms warm and comfortable! Our host Mrs Murphy and her daughter and staff are all friendly and full of knowledge about the local area. We booked through AirBnB so good to see the technology is embraced at the Farmhouse! Stunning sunsets and views from the house. Traditional Irish breakfast plentiful!

Was very accommodating, rooms were lovely and our hostess was exceptional. I will recommend you to all who ask. When I return I will try to stay there also. My family and I were never hungry for all the food you gave us. The introduction to your local yogurt was amazing. I loved the fact that we could walk down... More

We were met by elderly Mrs. Murphy who led us up to the rooms. That was all we saw of any staff until breakfast time, when we met one of the daughters and one of the nieces. They were busy, but not too busy to stop and give us suggestions for places to visit. (Yes, Torc Falls is spectacular when... More

Our night at Murphy's Farmhouse was comfortable. The rooms are large, ensuited and provide tea in room. The breakfast was delicious and varied. This is a family run house and they are all very solicitous. The house is close to Killarney National Park and Dingle.

Lovely house, lovely people and great breakfasts! We had a lovely stay and were made to feel very welcome. The place is run by Mary and her niece. It is a real working farm but they ahve converted the main house in to a B &B. It was quiet and restful and perfect for the Ring of Kerry and Dingle

The positives: a quiet location surrounded by a beautiful landscape, plenty of parking space and an excellent range of food at breakfast which was well cooked. The negatives: the view from our room was a wall, the bed creaked and the shower was extremely small.

My husband and I enjoyed our 5 nights at the Murphy's Farmhouse. The Daughter, Mary, was so pleasant each morning and we really appreciate their genuine care about their guests and family run business. We thoroughly enjoyed the delicious breakfast, comfortable room, and nice shower. This was a good, quiet and peaceful location. It was midpoint between Killarney and Dingle... More

Nice, quite little spot, an actual running farmhouse. Got off to a bit of a rocky start being curtly welcomed by our host and left to our own devices to get our things in. However everything else was fabulous. Breakfast was lovely each morning, freshly baked pastries and scones and also hot breakfasts available. It's very quite and not much... More
