Spent six wonderful hours here...

This is a great little pub. The landlord and staff are incredibly friendly and welcoming to everyone who walks through the door. Good beer garden out the back too. I can see why it is rated so highly.

If you want a traditional Irish Bar, dripping with atmosphere and a great choice of brews, look no further.

By far the best pub we visited in Bantry. The owner couldn't have been more welcoming. Great selection of drinks. There's a little old fashioned shop at the front and huge beer garden at the back.

We loved this place. Fantastic staff who were knowledgeable about craft beers and local gins. We had a great chat with all of the staff and even came back after dinner at the fish kitchen (best restaurant in bantry by far and even the locals approve of it) Stop by ma murphys you won't be disappointed

Fantastic pub for a pint, whether you want to sit and have a quiet pint or listen to the locals play music for free (they need to be paid they are so good), Ma's is the place to go! The locals suggest that you do not have the food on the menu in the pub as its not exactly a... More
