We enjoyed our lunch at Murphy's...The Cottage Pie was sooooo good. Extra veggies hit the spot. If I lived in Killarney Murphy's would be my favorite restaurant to visit very often. Eat at Murphy's. You'll be glad you did.

What a great place for late lunch! On a cold, blustery day we went inside and found a cozy, intimate atmosphere and super service. The vegetable soup was thick and hot, accompanied by brown bread and butter. The Irish stew was delicious and filling, also came with bread and butter. We would return, no doubt about it, to sample more... More

A nice little pub with friendly staff that serves really REALLY good home style Irish meals (pub style meals), like Shepard's Pie and Irish Lamb Stew. Along with a few pints of Guinness, we left full and happy!

Second time to Killarney and we just couldn't not stop in for a pint or five. Music next door was just what the doctor ordered. Easy access and the craic was everywhere. We even met a couple who were from less than 100 miles from us in the states. It just proves the owners have something special here.
