Stopped in with some friends while traveling. Corned beef was delicious and so was the Shepard's pie! Big portions.

The bits on the wall made this place. Great Guiness served at this place (because it's drinken so much here, it's usually a fresh keg). I didn't have food so I can't speak to that but the prices were about average for the town and the beer was good with a good atmosphere. Great craic (you'll get it when you... More

The pub itself is okay, showing many different sports on various screens around the bar. However, the food was average at best. The service wasn't great as it was quite slow though the waitress was very friendly and helpful when she did get to our table. Overall, not the best I've experienced.

This was the best food I had on my Ireland trip. I had the traditional Irish stew which was out of this world. I was extremely happy!

With my name at the entrance and on my first excursion to the Motherland, my choice for a brew was Murphy’s in Killarney, County Kerry. A pint of Murphy’s Irish stout (a dark amber beer) is about 4.5 euros, around $7. A large part of that cost, and those in the restaurant, is Ireland’s 23 percent consumption tax. The bar... More

We stumbled upon Murphy's late at night and had an amazing time in this pub. We ran into someone named Bogey who seems to frequent this pub and is very well welcomed as soon as he comes in. He sang a few tunes with the band who was playing authentic Irish music and it was a really great time. One... More

Good food and a very nice atmosphere with great Irish music- thoroughly enjoyable. I think we were the last ones to leave the place the night we were there.

The food was excellent and good value for money. Didn't have to wait too long for a table, service was quick, and we were not rushed to leave after we had finished
