I'm not normally a fan of ice cream but this ice cream took my breath away it was so yummy! Great flavours and the lovely guy the shop let us try some before we bought! Dingle sea salt and butterscotch is great combo! Delicious.

Forget Italian gelato, this place does the most amazing ice cream ever. The flavours are original and varied, I thoroughly recommend the sea salt (made with salt from dingle bay). The staff were so friendly and brought tasters around for everyone in the store. If I could get this ice cream for my wedding home in England I would!

If you are going to have ice cream and eat all those calories, then this is the one to eat. Brown bread ice cream and all the others we tried were superb.

I first saw Murphy's on Clodagh's Irish Food Trails on PBS in the US. As soon as we arrived in Dingle we headed to the store. I was coaxed into tasting the Cinnamon and Toasted Oat flavors by the very persuasive helpers. So creamy and delicious! I think we went there 3 times in 24 hours! I just wish we... More

This place uses milk from the Kerry cows and organic eggs from free range chickens. The ice cream is so creamy it is similar to frozen custard. The sea salt and honey comb caramel are a great combination.

This ice cream was incredible! We had it all 3 days that we were in Dingle. The first day I got Bailey's and Chocolate, the second day Vanilla and Raspberry Sorbet, and the third Bailey's, Kieran's Cookies, and Chocolate. None of the combinations disappointed! The variety of flavors is amazing, and they all mix and match really well. The customer... More

You can enjoy Murphy's ice cream in Dingle or in Dublin. Ice cream is freshly made and tastes great. My favorite flavor was called Sea Salt ice cream. Face it, you are just going to eat your way through Ireland because the food is so good, and be sure to make Murphy's part of that great experience.

I read about this place in "Ireland for Dummies" book. They had some unique flavors. It was hard to choose but they let you have as many as you want - You just pick the size and they will layer it. I had sea salt, caramel, and chocolate. Yum!

Stunmbled across this place downtown. They pride themselves for using the milk from the cows around Dingle. Trust me the butterfat content of all their ice cream is on the high end AND delicious. Even though it was mostly teenagers serving they were pleasant and friendly to us Yanks. Lots of choices of flavors that did not disappoint.
