We loved this creamy, delicious ice cream. They offered free samples of all favors. The brown bread was amazing. The workers were so cheerful and delighted to share their product. We liked it so much we visited two of their three locations in one week.

I could not resist the fresh salt ice cream. It's not salty - it's just plain cream made from salt somehow. I don't know how they make it, but I am still dreaming about this ice cream shop and wishing I could have had so much more than one visit and one scoop. OMG .... you can't go wrong here!

Went to see if we could see Funghi today in Dingle Bay, and found this fab ice-cream shop. All locally made using local products and very very good quality. Staff are really helpful, happily giving samples to any or all the flavours. As someone else reviewed, yes this is more expensive than most ice-cream, but if you're like me and... More

Love the moral of the story here in Murphys. Love the sorbets made from rain water. My absolute favourite combo is the very tart rasberry sorbet with sea salt ice cream. nice cuppa Joe here too.

Went into the store last Tuesday it was jam packed with people and I found the staff a little pushy with sales, ice cream is good but very over priced. Its a bit of a tourist trap.

What a delightful place to go for a coffee and/or an ice cream. The girls behind the counter give out tasters of any ice cream flavoured with such enthusiasm and cheerfulness. By the way the ice cream is pretty good too!

We were told Murphy's is Dingle's best, so of course we had to give it a try. I had the sea salt and gin flavors, and boy did they tickle my tongue with delight! I only wished I had more time in Dingle so I could try more ice cream flavors. :)

My family stayed in Dingle for 4 days and had ice cream (at least) once a day. We tried both Murphy´s and the other ice cream shop in town. Although very expensive, Murphy´s ice cream is really something special - fabulous flavors and excellent taste. Even the small cones have two flavors - we especially enjoyed the sea salt and...
