“Good honest bar food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Although "pub grub", the mussels were fantastic. Cottage pie very good. Waitress service was super! This is always my first stop in Killarney. For a more formal meal I go upstairs to the Lord Kenmare which is without doubt the best in town.

“Excellent pub food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

The food was an excellent rendition of pub food. Wait staff were very attentive and prompt. Good service was quick and prices were reasonable. It's a great location, but not overly busy.

“Not their best effort”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

We went here on the advice of our driver and unfortunately we did not have a great experience. Waited for our food for a LONG time only to see tables around us served (who were seated well after us). The manager came to see us after we'd eaten and apologized and took off one meal and a round of Guinness...a true gentleman!

Murphy's Bar. Good pub food, not expensive. Good service. In the middle of everything, typical pub atmosphere

“Historic fun pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

We enjoyed Murphy's quaint atmosphere full of locals and tourists alike. I had the Cottage Pie which was very similar to shepherd's pie. It was amazing and so delicious. Seasoned perfectly with diced vegetables inside. My husband had the traditional lamb stew which he loved as well. If you want to feel the heartbeat of Ireland and enjoy some wonderful local food Murphy's is the place for you.
