“Fun local pub - great pub food”
Reviewed September 9, 2012 via mobile

A small but true Irish Pub on College Street in downtown Killarney. Terrific Irish fare. Beware this bar gets crowded quickly on busy nights.

“Great Family food”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

We arrived in after lunch with a party of 8, 4 adults and 4 children. The place was pretty busy but they managed to seat us all together at one large table. The kids ranging from 2-6 years all ate from the childrens menu, they loved the food and ate everything (4 year old even told the chef it was the best food he ever had) even though the portions were very large. The adults all ate something different but again the plates were emptied.
The staff were lovely and made sure we had everything we needed.
The bill wasn't too bad either considering 8 of us ate there.

“Great Irish Music”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

This was a fun Pub to relax and listen to Irish Music. We went here a few times. It was relaxing. Music usually starts around 9:30PM. We did not eat here but we were told the food is very good.

“No Murphy's Law at Murphy's”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

We found Murphy's in the middle of Killarney, after some high praise from some locals. Authentic Irish musicians were filling the front room, the ambience was wooden and dark, and a broad array of taps were lining the bar. Multiple staff members greeted and welcomed us, and the menu is a long list of yummy choices. My favorite part was a wonderful dartboard in a cozy nook. There's nothing like a pint of Harp, Irish music, and throwing a few legs of darts to make you feel like you are part of the country.
