“Good place to stay”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

We have just stayed for the second time at Murphys b and b in Dingle, and woud recommend it to anyone wanting a good clean b and b with a grand view of the harbour ( despite the rather ill thought out sitiing of the public loos ) However, nothing to do with Murphys. Michael gave us a very warm and friendly welcome, and the room was spotless. Breakfast very good, and if we are in that area again we would return again. If in Dingle , go there. The pub next door is okay too for food, and has always been busy when we have gone.

The location of this B&B is terrific - right amongst the pubs, shops and view of water front - yet suprisingly quiet rooms! Made reservations via email with Siobhan a week before. En suite rooms were very clean, comfortable and quiet. (Not to be confused with Murphy's Pub next door which also has B&B! Good place for food, drinks, and music) (No private parking, but public parking was not a problem.) Breakfast was delicious and served in dining room overlooking waterfront. Michael was very helpful providing information regarding local activities, local pubs and mass information. (It was Easter holiday). He recommended we take time for the Slea Head Drive -- which takes about 1 1/2 hours and is well worth it -- very scenic. So glad we did. Dingle was our favorite stop in Ireland, we wish we could have stayed more than one day/night -- we will be back to spend more time next trip and will definitely stay at Murphy's B&B again -- highly recommend it!

The Dingle Pennisula is absolutely stunning and though it takes a special trip it is well worth the effort. Not brave enough to drive while in Ireland, we took the bus from Tralee to Dingle Town which was a lovely ride especially if you sit in the front and has all the beautiful views of green patchwork and oceans. We stayed at Murphy's B & B right on the working harbor where Michael was a good host (though we hardly spoke with him) and breakfast was grand. We chose the front larger room (top floor, right window) where there is a 2 x 2 window looking over the harbor. The first floor is a shop, second floor is the dining and I believe residence, and the top floor are the rooms. This is a busy main two lane road the hugs the harbour but still has a country feel. There were no traffic sounds at night. This B&B felt more like a hotel because you could come and go without seeing the host at all.

The location was perfect for catching the bus (1 block away), shopping the tourist shops (four block radius), great pubs (especially liked John Benny Moriarty's Pub about 2 blocks away), and taking in a Slea Head Tour (Denis Ryan's Slea Head drive-personal tour in his vehicle).

We were a little surprised how touristy and busy the harbour was in August, the height of the busy season. We stayed two nights which was enough time to get the feel of the pennisula but if we had a car I would have stayed much longer to scope out the stunning countryside. But then I do not believe there is any car parking for this B & B.

I would visit this B & B again because of it's strategic location to the water views and nightlife available in Dingle Town. Great price, no frills decor but very clean. Be sure to bring your camera!

Room Tip: Chose the front family room with the window toward the harbour. Small window, but nice to have to vi...

Dingle is a beautiful little town with great craic. If you are going to Dingle than this is the place to stay. The owners are personable and very helpful. The rooms were spacious and clean. Michael is just a gem. Great rate, great location, great folks.
