We were three hikers and wanted to spend a few days exploring Dingle and the neighboring countryside/area. We had a wonderful visit to Murphy's. The accommodations were very good and we enjoyed a delicious Irish breakfast each morning. It was a good location with quiet evenings - would recommend.

A most enjoyable stay. I enjoyed a lovely walk to the wee village and a peaceful stroll in the morning down the lane to see the cattle. Very peaceful and relaxing. Although the lower level hall is narrow, the rooms are spacious and the beds comfortable. WiFi did not work in our room but was accessible in the living room....

My husband and I stayed at Murphy's Farmhouse for one night. I wish we could have stayed longer. Murphy's Farmhouse is a lovely place on the edge of the DIngle Penninsula. We were a bit late getting there, but we were greeted warmly. Our room was very clean and comfortable and the bed was great. Breakfast was simply yummy with...

Very disappointed. It was so different from the reviews I read on the B& B Ireland website. Our room was very small looking with ugly roof. It was noisy and smelly with dripping the water from rubber hose. The rubbish tin in the bathroom was not clean from the previous guests and the quilt cover was full of somebody's hair!...

Upon our arrival, we were greeted with the most adorable calves in the front pasture of this working family farm and bed & breakfast. We were shown our room which was clean & comfortable with the most incredible views of the sunset over the rolling pastures. Breakfast was fresh, locally sourced, made to order Irish breakfast and delicious. The Murphy...

We needed a place in between a couple stops during our driving vacation in Ireland and this one had great reviews. We are so happy we stayed here. The room we had was far more spacious than a lot of hotel rooms and the country setting and friendly hospitality added to its charm. We didn't get to have the breakfast...

Stayed for one night whilst travelling along wild atlantic way. Parking was easy. Room was spacious with small 2 seater seat, decent tv, king (maybe superking) bed, nice view from room.

I ended up needing to arrive a day early and they were able to accommodate me, no problem. The location was great, right between the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula. Mary asked about my daily plans each morning and made suggestions, then followed up the next day.

In my over 30 years of International and US domestic travel I don't know if I have ever stayed at a better B and B than Murphys Farmhouse.

My wife and I did a drive and B&B tour of ireland. This was our least favorite B&B. The greeting, when we arrived was nothing more than "Your room is upstairs, I'll get the key".
