“Great pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

On a rainy day during our trip we walked through the town and stopped into Murphy's bar for some food and drinks. The bartender was very friendly, food and drink reasonable priced.

“Charming pub...great Guinness !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

While spending 4 nights in Killarney we kept coming back to this pub. It had a great atmosphere. With each visit the staff were very attentive and friendly and we had a great time chatting with them. We also enjoyed their menu. It is pub grub but of very high quality and a reasonable price. The seafood chowder was amazing and the fresh caught fish and chips were excellent. It is a very cozy and relaxing pub.....our favourite in Killarney. Great music each evening. Wonderful experience....you cant go to Killarney without going to Murphys!!!
