No ice cream I've ever had compares to Murphy's

Call it the result of milk from the Kerry cow, or a slow churn process, but if you like ice cream, don't pass up your favorite flavor at Murphy's. I like small batch ice cream, and this is tops. For my older teenagers, the wait staff behind the counter were a draw as well.

Although it was very cold and rainy during our visit to Dingle, we couldn't pass up trying Murphy's ice cream. We had read about it and had been told by several people, "be sure to try Murphy's when you are in Dingle". We sampled several flavors including Irish Whiskey Coffee (too strong for me....but hubby loved it), Caramel Honeycomb (I... More

Popped in for ice cream and a coffee with my boyfriend. The staff were very friendly and helpful with picking out the flavours to try and giving samples of the different kinds . The ice cream is super tasty and well worth dropping in for a sit down or take away

I'm from Boston which has a lot of ice cream shops. This ice cream was very creamy. Their flavor range was also surprisingly good, 16 or so flavors and all stood out.

Incredible ice cream! Tons of unusual flavors. My favorite is sea salt mixed with honeycomb - absolutely delicious combination!! It's fairly expensive for ice cream, but very good quality. Had to find the Dublin location too, it was so good! Very nice little shop and incredibly friendly staff. Really wish I could visit more often!!

Went there our last evening. Stayed until they opened the next morning for hot chocolate! Found out where their Dublin location was and went there too. Best. Ice cream. Ever.

Came to Dingle and discovered the best ice cream shop ever. We all bought tshirts and a bag. The boy working there was so sweet. My sister got an espresso with her ice cream and it was delicious. Looking forward to going back one day all the way from Texas :)
