I visited recently as I had heard of this company. I must say the staff were good if a bit rushed, the choice and taste truly wonderful. I really wish i did not have to criticise such a great Irish success story but the price, €5.50 for 4 small scoops in a small tub is just a rip-off and I'm... More

The staff here are very friendly and allow you to taste as many of the ice creams as you like before deciding which to buy which is nice but overall I was disappointed. I had heard so much about this place that when I was in Dingle I decide I had to go, only to be underwhelmed when I arrived.... More

My wife and I stopped into Murphy's for a wee rest but ended up having a wonderful experience. The staff behind the counter were absolutely lovely. The girl who helped us decide which ice cream to choose made loads of suggestions and gave us little samples of many flavours. We each had a coffee and two scoops, and it was... More

3 evenings in Dingle and 3 nights we went to Murphys for "dessert" after dinner. Lovely atmosphere, fantastic service from owner and staff.

The ice cream was great and they had a lot of flavors you don't see other places, like sea salt and brown bread. They also let you try any number of the flavors before ordering.

I loved this ice cream shop! I went many times during my stay in Dingle and my favourite flavours were rum and raisin, dingle gin and cookies. The service was lovely, especially from the gorgeous young man from Oxford! Would definitely recommend a trip here if you are in Dingle.

This ice cream was so great, we made a trip every day we were in Dingle! Sea salt and honey caramel... I'm still dreaming about it! I only wish they'd had a shirt in my size so I could represent Murphy's here at home.

Rum raisin was to die for. Other flavors are good, too. There's another location in Killarney, and we hit both of them. :-)

Simply the best ice cream I have ever eaten delivered to me in the best consumer experience I have ever experienced. These guys are seriously passionate about their amazing product and to see them sharing that with customers is inspiring. This place is the best.
