We stumbled into Murphy's looking to have a decent dinner and a pint or two of Guinness. We had a great time, the food was excellent, portions were huge and the service was outstanding. Sean Murphy (proprietor) came by and checked on us to make sure our waitress (his daughter) was doing a fine job. We learned that Murphy's has been a multi-generational (at least 4 generations) family-owned restaurant/bar. What a great place to go if you're in Killarney!

Hello ,
Thank you for a really nice review! Delighted you were happy with your waitress, she has been trained well by Seán !! We like to keep it in the family especially in the Summer months when we have school holidays.
We hope you had a great time visiting Killarney.
All the best ,

Great pub, good music, craft beers on draught! However you feel surrounding by tourists (which is the general feel of Killarney)

Thank Migwen

We were going to go to another local pub, but they were rude so we decided to go to Murphy's because it was across the street from our hotel. It was a hidden gem, the food was delicious and not badly priced at all.

The food and service was amazing. We ate dinner upstairs, which has a very quaint, somewhat romantic vibe, but is also good for a larger party. The food was so fresh, healthy, and authentic. We had visited the downstairs pub earlier in the day, which has a vibrant, pub-like vibe, but the upstairs is much more of a dinner atmosphere...like a beautiful old farmhouse. Very nice experience.

....Cottage pie in ireland. And the stuffed chicken was fantastic. We love the small Pub atmosphere as well . No live music while we were here, but the Irish music piped-in was true to form
