Other reviews mentioned the price. It is not exactly cheap and the portions are fairly small. But, it's totally worth it! I travel in and out of Dublin at least twice a year and always look forward to Murphy's...unique flavors, rich and creamy and just tastes awesome. The counter people are very friendly, and encourage you to try any flavor.

This is one of the best ice cream shops located in a small street perpendicular to Grafton Street. The street is just before the Brown Thomas. Perfect selection on offer. Gorgeous, sumptuous ice cream. Good portion and we found staff very friendly. We tried the Toasted Irish Oats which was quite good and different and silky smooth chocolate.

Love popping in here when in Dublin. The Ice Creams are delicious as well as unusual, the Butterscotch, Seasalt and Sorbets are amazing. A must try and also handy to be able to sit in. Really helpful and cheerful staff too.

This small ice cream shop, selling very delicious artisan ice cream in a range of regular and more unusual flavours with a cheerful smile, is a wonderful place. The ice cream is just very, very, very good, the service is attentive and very friendly and my only regret is that I didn't manage to go there again before heading to... More

Incredible flavors (the caramelized brown bread and the Irish Coffee are particularly fantastic), smooth and creamy. Served by the nicest people in Dublin for sure. Worth a detour.

Love Murphy's. Amazing flavors and textures. They will give you all the tastes you want but both times I ended up with the same, Butterscotch and Dingle Sea Salt... mmmmmmm.

Such a friendly atmosphere, really casual and homely. The best icecream I've ever had, so creamy and delicious. Try the caramel and salt icecream, such a wonderful combo

According to my wife and granddaughter this is the best ice cream in Dublin. I have to agree it was pretty damn good! Don't go anywhere else for ice cream if you're in Dublin - go to Murphy's of Dingle and enjoy yourself.

I am italian and I love my ice cream. Went to Murphy's and I found it very expensive, tiny portions for nothing special ice cream. If you fancy a good gelato go to Ginos on Grafton street is cheaper, bigger portions and much better taste!
