A nice break as you work the shops along Dingle’s waterfront. The ice cream tastes homemade. They say the ingredients are local (to include local cows). Not sure if that really matters, but the ice cream was good and the staff was friendly.

Our group of well-travelled ice cream lovers was very impressed with Murphy's. So much so that we skipped desert at our restaurant and returned for a second time the following evening. Some words that come to mind: fresh, natural, authentic, wholesome. The young people behind the counter are very sweet, as well. Don't forget to visit the cow in the... More

Everything here feels like you're the 60's. The icecream is made with local byodinamyc ingredients in the old fashioned way. It's a family thing, so you"ll probably be served by one of the young members in very typical 50's or 60's outfit. It's difficult to choose a flavour. They all taste gorgeous..

This place is great! Flavors are so creative and you can taste them before you make your daring decision! We ordered a few different sundaes and tried as many flavors as we could between the 4 of us. The staff took our orders and then let us sit down outside and brought our ice cream out to us!!! It was... More

We initially brought our 3 year old here as a treat but after tasting the ice cream we needed no excuse to go back several more times. The butterscotch and raspberry sorbet are incredible. The staff are very friendly and its a nice touch allowing you to taste different flavours before buying.....its a must.

We were told that this is probably the best icecream we had ever tried. I concluded the word "probably" should be removed from the previous statement. To paraphrase - talking about the flavour of this icecream is like dancing about architecture. You just have to go and try it.

We first tried Murphy's in Killarney and then had to have it again in Dingle! The BEST rum raisin ice cream I have ever had! You can really taste the difference when it's made by hand with real Rum. The perfect treat!

While holidaying in Kerry, we were really looking forward to getting ice-cream in Murphys. We had visited a few years back and had great ice-cream memories from Murphys! Staff in the shop were really friendly and offered multiple flavours to sample which was a nice touch. We went with the vanilla, strawberry, gin, and lemon curd. The nicest was definitely... More
