We had a rainy night in Killarney and found Murphy's Bar. It was busy and the service was not bad. We arrived in time to see local musicians and they were excellent. The food was average but the atmosphere made up for it.

We hat the teriyaki salmon salad and the fried hake and they were both awesome. The salmon had a distinctive smoky Taste and the hake's panko crust was extra crispy. The service was really friendly and the atmosphere quite comfy.
