I was determined to find some good ice cream while on my Ireland vacation and this place hit the spot. The people were friendly and the ice cream was delicious! I had a milkshake blending the sea salt and butterscotch ice cream which made a perfect flavor combination. If you see a Murphy's while you are in Ireland, don't miss... More

Murphy's claims to have the best ice cream in the world .... take it with a pinch of salt... The ice cream is nice, but I certainly have eaten better ice cream in Italy, Switserland etc.... One has to be careful when making claims like that.

Hi there, and thanks for coming in to us! Actually, we don't make the claim of being the best in the world (although we work hard to get there!) - we were chosen as one of the 10 best ice cream parlours in the world by USA Today... More

I'm not normally a fan of ice cream but this ice cream took my breath away it was so yummy! Great flavours and the lovely guy the shop let us try some before we bought! Dingle sea salt and butterscotch is great combo! Delicious.

Forget Italian gelato, this place does the most amazing ice cream ever. The flavours are original and varied, I thoroughly recommend the sea salt (made with salt from dingle bay). The staff were so friendly and brought tasters around for everyone in the store. If I could get this ice cream for my wedding home in England I would!

If you are going to have ice cream and eat all those calories, then this is the one to eat. Brown bread ice cream and all the others we tried were superb.

I first saw Murphy's on Clodagh's Irish Food Trails on PBS in the US. As soon as we arrived in Dingle we headed to the store. I was coaxed into tasting the Cinnamon and Toasted Oat flavors by the very persuasive helpers. So creamy and delicious! I think we went there 3 times in 24 hours! I just wish we... More

This place uses milk from the Kerry cows and organic eggs from free range chickens. The ice cream is so creamy it is similar to frozen custard. The sea salt and honey comb caramel are a great combination.

This ice cream was incredible! We had it all 3 days that we were in Dingle. The first day I got Bailey's and Chocolate, the second day Vanilla and Raspberry Sorbet, and the third Bailey's, Kieran's Cookies, and Chocolate. None of the combinations disappointed! The variety of flavors is amazing, and they all mix and match really well. The customer... More

You can enjoy Murphy's ice cream in Dingle or in Dublin. Ice cream is freshly made and tastes great. My favorite flavor was called Sea Salt ice cream. Face it, you are just going to eat your way through Ireland because the food is so good, and be sure to make Murphy's part of that great experience.
