Great Ice Cream

We had Murphy's twice while we were in Dingle. They have your standard flavors, but take a chance on some of the more adventurous flavors like brown bread, Dingle gin, or sea salt. In addition, they had excellent sorbets as well. I have a very high standard for ice cream and Murphy's passed with... read more

We visited the store in Dingle. Such welcoming staff, the weather outside was freezing, hailstones pelting down but the staff were all smiles & chat, offering a taster of different flavours to help us made our choice. The ice cream was so creamy, tasty & delicious it made me long for more.

I'm not an huge ice cream fan, but Murphy's has me addicted. I'm in love with Dingle Sea Salt. They had chocolate sorbet available as a trial flavor. That was delicious beyond words! Please come to America!

Awesome Ice-Cream and the fact that it is home-made makes it all the nicer. We were greeted by a girl at the door who was giving out samples and so once we had a taste we had to go in and get a whole one it was that nice. I tried the Brown Bread and others in my group tried... More

After a bowl of seafood chowder, ice cream sound tantalizingly good, even on a cold winter day. I got the Sea Salt, and it was out of this world. I ate it bite by bite as I wandered around this charming town. Staff was very kind, let me try out a few before I settled on the Sea Salt. Can't... More

What a lovely place! The staff was great and the ice cream outstanding. I actually came back an hour later to buy a brownie for the road. Delicious! It is pricey, but it's totally worth it.
