All the girls were absolutely amazing, so lovely and they loved their job, loved serving us and had a real laugh and chat. Especially as I was dairy free and lived in London, we chatted and had a real good chat.

Offering traditional and off-the-beaten-part flavors, this spot was great. There are multiple locations, but the quality was great. Try the gin and raspberry ice cream for an alcoholic flair. Mmmm.

What a great ice cream parlour! From the great service to delicious ice cream, this is one ice cream shop you have to try. Best reason: gin ice cream. Not just gin flavoured, but gin-full!

If you like ice cream this is the place to go. The staff are friendly, you can sample a few options and decide what you'd like. There are unusual flavours, like Irish Gin, but the sea salt is amazing.

Very good ice cream - however limited flavor choices and very high prices made us wonder how this place stays in business! The kind of place you go - just once!

Went here every day at some point. There's always a crowd even if it's only for the free samples. Didn't try an ice cream I didn't like. Says its the best ice cream in the world and i'm not going to disagree.

Murphys makes all of its own ice cream from scratch in Co. Kerry, using milk from the rare Kerry Cow breed and hand-made craft. Murphys makes its own sea salt for their sea salt ice cream and even make their own chocolate chips. They also serve coffees and a delicious range of hot chocolates.
