I had a caramel and sea salt ice cream in a cone. Very good😃 My son had butterscotch and cookie . All came to over €11.00 for two which felt expensive. Compared to Sorrento's(Italy ) ice cream I had last week.... Not nearly as good and 3 times the price.

Went in after our walk of Dingle for ice cream. It was very crowded witch I didn't mind. I got the sea salt sundae and it was delicious. The price was a bit high for ice cream though.

We have been going to dingle for many years and only discovered Murphy's last July. Wow! The ice cream tastes absolutely fantastic - nothing like ordinary parlours - with exciting flavours such as brown bread, sea salt and Irish coffee! A personal favourite is Butterscotch and Raspberry! The staff are so friendly and helpful and one member of staff recognised... More

Loved the ice cream and the different flavours - think it was a bit pricey but when you are on vacation who cares! Where else can you find Irish Organic Oats Ice cream or Dingle Gin with Handmade Lemon Curd ice cream that tastes like a gin tonic - gotta try!

Try to brown bread ice cream... it sounds weird, but it's delicious. I'm craving more and there's nowhere to get any back home!

Ice cream in Ireland is not good in general. But Murphy's stands out amongst some of the world's best. Innovative, local, organic flavors and cream. Staff is super nice, encourages samples, and replaces dropped cones by kids on hot day.

I loved my rasberry and chocolate small icecream and Liam liked his vanilla and chocolate. Did I have better icecream elsewhere? I think so, but it was yummy for a sunny day in Dingle and not the kind of 99c soft ice you get trown at you anywhere in Ireland. So if you're in Dingle and into icecream, you won't... More

We had never had ice cream so yummy! I tried their unusual Salted Caramel/Sea Salt combo! This Ice cream killed it for me! I'll never be satisfied with any other ice cream again! :-( Unfortunately, we don't have Kerry Cows in the USA! Don't miss it! Murphy's Ice Cream is the Bomb-diggity! <3

Tried 3 samples at the counter, the staff were very patient! However because of the 3 samples I tried none of them really tasted of much I eventually chose the caramel, and the rum and raisin. Sadly, these flavours were very weak! I'm afraid I could not really recommend this place for a "special"experience. Basically it's just run of the... More

Murphy's is in a great location near Dingle Harbour and has a few tables and chairs which became available without a wait when we visited twice during our holiday. Among more usual flavours, they serve Dingle Sea Salt, Dingle Gin, Brown Bread, Oats. All are delicious and you can sample as many flavours as you like while waiting and deciding.... More
