Ice cream is a must for this family.

Plenty of flavors in cup or cone. The ice cream was so delicious and creamy, There are a lot of places that serve ice cream but I think we made an excellent choice. Thanks to all the Irish cows.

We visit Murphys Ice Cream Parlour in both Dingle and Killarney whenever we're in either town. Both are fun places, lovely staff and delicious ice cream. Seriously good ice cream. My favourite flavour is sea salt. A little expensive but worth it for a treat!!

A lot of fun for an afternoon treat. You can sample as many flavors as you would like before ordering. The ice cream isn't cheap but it's different local flavors you can't get any where else. You can also have two different flavors in your cup or cone. Truly enjoyed the Dingle Sea Salt with Kieran's Cookies.

Incredibly friendly service and great, creamy ice cream. Had scoops of sea salt and butterscotch, which was a recommended combination. Also sampled their gin and brown bread favors as well. A tad pricey, but worth it. Anyone who rates this less than 4 stars need to have their taste buds examined.

Probably the best ice cream in the world. 100% sure this is the best I've ever eaten. We tried nearly everything, and it all worked great. Dublin location is just as good, but the quirkyness of it in Dingle, right in the middle of West Kerry dairy country (thus the good milk), makes it just that much sweeter. This is... More

We went to Murphy's in Dingle and Killarney. My 17 year old daughter went there twice daily! My waist couldn't handle that many visits...Nevertheless, we loved this ice cream. The flavors are unusual and the texture is perfect. It's very similar to Wisconsin custard here in the states. A great treat no matter what the weather is doing!

Over priced, small portions and average taste. Disappointed that everyone was raving about this ice cream being soo good. Not worth a stop as far as I am concerned.
