A must see experience. A step back in time is how I would describe it. The boss, Bill (of Welsh origin) was a great character and very friendly, welcoming and sociable. Front area contained a fridge that celebrated it's 70th birthday recently( a product of General Motors). Clientelle mixed freely, and it was a must see. Will definetly return.

We stumbled on this wonderful wee pub while in Bantry,what a lovely place to pass an hour or two . A shop on the way in and Guiness on the other side of the door. Friendly staff and customers, two from America and a Irish/French couple. Long may it remain unchanged.

You cannot go wrong visiting Ma Murphy's for a pint, a laugh and a warm smile from Bill behind the bar. You will definitely feel at home with a pint of Guinness in the back garden...but I promise one will certainly lead to two.

Totally overrated by the previous reviews. Atmosphere ok , beer garden on a sunny day nice enough. Totally spoilt by the bar allowing a crowd of "poets " to give a performance . Totally unsuitable content with bad language and in appropriate content . For the sake of our teenager and an elderly grand mother we left
Avoid if you have children or if the poets are in residence

Step back into the past and yet into the present - a great haunt good local music and a wide selection of drinks along with some bar food also. Great ambiance and friendly staff a place you could easily pass on hours on a rainy day or night!
