This is worth a detour to visit. Its an authentic old style pub. It has a great landlord and great staff who are very friendly. They all pull a great pint and they could not be more friendly and welcoming. Its right on the pier...More

Cosy Pub on Brandon Pier with a fireplace fulled by peat. Really friendly staff. Great to stop in for a pint.

A tiny pub on the pier, pouring decent pints and whiskeys, worth stopping at if you’re in the area. It was approaching the off season when we were there so they were only serving special toasteds, which was fine.

They serve a really wonderful pint in Murphys. The kids can have fun at the pier while you indulge. Lovely sambos as well if you're hungry. Great location at all times of day but when the sun starts to go down😁

Murphy's Bar in Brandon is West Kerry's best-kept secret, at least for now! A local staple, the pub has gotten better every single year. I've always ventured down for a lovely Guinness, but now you can enjoy toasties, crab sandwiches, and chips with your pint....More

First Time here wish it was only around the corner from home.... Had 1 of each sambo of menu for us all to try.... Each 1 was equally as nice. And the chips are to die for.......

Have been visiting Murphy's for a good few years. It keeps on getting better. A small, traditional family run pub in a perfect location by Brandon pier. In the summer there are plenty of benches and tables outside, plus a new extended seating area covered....More

A little off the beaten track outside Castlegregory but so worth it for fantastic food, welcoming service and a lovely harbour location.
