Great pub, great food, lovely wood burning fireplace and friendly staff. Just what we needed on a crisp damp day. Fire, food, beer, and service with a smile!

We tried a few places in Killarney, settled at Murphy's because of the comfortable atmosphere in the bar and were lured into ordering dinner when we saw the incredible food being served around us. Try the Kerry lamb roast and the Kerry beef Cottage Pie.More
