“Traditional Irish Pub Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014

Murphy's makes you feel that you're in a real Irish pub (which of course you are). It's apparently been here for many years and seems to be a favorite of tourists and locals alike. Warm and inviting, priced right, with a great bar and authentic food ... Irish stew makes you feel like you're in the right place.

We go there just at the right time (maybe just before 8pm), because we only had to wait about 10mins ... after we were seated, many people had to leave because the wait was so long (more than an hour)! So, get there early.

“Great for a singsong”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014 via mobile

Called in there later in the evening last night as the music sounded great from outside. It was absolutely jumping with old and young all enjoying themselves. Certainly worth a wee stop.

“Nice pub in the heart of Killarney”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014

Very accommodating and helpful staff. Food was good and lots of it for the price. The owner has a finer dining restaurant above, (See Lord Kenmare's Restaurant) if you want something a bit more plush.

“Best Bar in Killarney”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014

Great quality pint, lovely staff and service and a true sign of a great bar is where locals and tourists mix and it still feels like a great Irish Pub.

“Good find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

Our hotel recommended the bar. Not charming or beautiful physically like some of the pubs we've seen. But, very friendly,attentive staff and excellent food. Everything was great - cottage pie, seafood chowder and fish and chips. Guinness was perfect. Would definitely go back.
