Delicious

As good as Italian ice cream. The dark chocolate is to die for. Absolutely delicious ! If you are lucky you will see the girls outside with a tray of samples.

This place is a must for any trip to Dingle. Up there with you know who! We rounded off an enjoyable day trip to Dingle with great ice cream and great and friendly service. The staff demonstrated that great skill of making you feel like you are the only customers even though they are rushed off their feet. And surprisingly... More

Good range of ice creams and sorbets, great taste and helpful staff who let you try samples before buying. However the ice-cream is very pricey (8 euros for 2 portions was a bit much).

Great selection of ice cream.. i took ages to decide what to get! I went for the caramel one, it was so creamy and beautiful. The icecream is on the expensive side though. I will try the brown bread icecream next time. Staff are so friendly and helpful also.

Nice to try as a one off experience but it is expensive. I had the dingle sea salt and brown bread ice cream, the sea salt was delicious. I think it was 5.80 for two scoops which is very pricey.

The ice cream is fab and the staff are very friendly. However, be warned that it is very pricey in comparison to other local ice cream shops.

I'm not an ice-cream person but when in Dingle ... had the sea salt and brown bread and the latter was so yummy. Staff were also super friendly. Coffee was just ok and at €3.50 for a latte is pretty extortionate in my opinion.

What can I say, it was wonderful as always. Have never been to Dingle and not visited Murphy's. Am only delighted it is also available in Dublin, where the staff are equally delightful.

Delicious ice cream, with fun different flavors like sea salt. The staff are very friendly and encourage you to try the flavors before you choose and suggest delicious combinations. I had chocolate and caramel and my partner had raspberry and sea salt. Sooo delicious!!

It was a hot September day in Dingle (can't imagine I would ever say that about anyplace in Ireland) and maybe that's why Murphy's ice cream was such a treat. We popped in and stood in line with all the other tourists and soon I had my favorite...rum raisin...in a cone. It sure was creamy and delicious...maybe due to the... More
