We knew to stop in and taste their ice cream. Quality ingredients, kind kids behind the counter. It was expensive, but then again they're making the ice cream themselves and using top quality ingredients. We ate ice cream two days in a row.

Had ice cream here at the recommendations of our tour guide. Really good ice cream! I had the Irish Cream and Rum Raisin flavors. My daughter had her usual favorite, chocolate chip. Both were excellent. Well worth the stop if you are going through Dingle!

Had to stop by here for some ice cream while in Dingle because of the other trip adivisor reviews - even though it was freezing outside. Ordered a cone of the sea salt and caramel cream and it was amazing. Very creamy and tasty!

the crew at Murphys was great! We walked in and were immediately given samples of ice cream to try. The staff was so friendly! My husband enjoyed dropping jokes in the joke bin and sharing his jokes with the staff. My family loved the ice cream and I thought the chocolate sorbet was out of this world!

We saw this shop on an Ireland documentary, so when we visited Dingly..we had to try it. it was very good. The sea salt Ice Cream was my favourite....not sure that it is as good as some of the Italian gelato we tried in Italy earlier on our trip....but fresh local produce...innovative flavours and friendly helpful staff....a mixture for success...

We were welcomed by a very friendly and enthusiastic lady, how let us taste any flavour we liked. Ice cream itself was really good, although the weather wasn't suited for it, we've really enjoyed it, capuccino to go was also really tasty. Nice cosy interior, with even a terras and bathroom.

One of the best ice creams in the world, the sea salt is the best. Great variety of flavors. The staff is dress for the occasion and the place is warm and cozy.
