I LOVED our treat at Murphy's. We had the brown bread ice cream. It was so satisfying and delicious! Even on a cold winter day I could not recommend Murphy's Ice Cream any more! I had the Sticky Toffee Pudding special-- highly recommended!!

After checking the closing time of Murphy's Icecream online we declined dessert at our restaurant only to arrive and find out it closed at 8pm! Fortunately, Karen the Icecream Queen spotted us holding back tears of disappointment while putting the bins out for the evening and invited us in for a special after hours service (to which she received a...

What an awesome find! Murphy's offers a selection of absolutely delicious ice creams; I had butterscotch which was amazing and my boyfriend had chocolate, which was equally as yummy. Staff are so friendly and clearly love what they do. Samples available and staff love you to try all different ones before you buy, they are very proud of their ice... More

I was told to make sure I stop at Murphy's and I'm glad I did. What a great dessert after a fine meal across the way. Don't miss it.

Was told to try this ice-cream by a local chef. Dropped in on a freezing night, but I'm so glad I did! The lady that served me was incredibly friendly and helpful. Allowed me to try some of the flavours before I was to make my final (and very tough) decision on which flavours and toppings to have. This ice-cream... More

Lovely staff and amazing, original ice-cream. The chocolate ice cream should be automatically added to any human's bucket list.

It is excellent ice cream shops in both Killarney and Dingle, we did go twice because we were on holiday. I loved the sea salt caramel, and also really loved the special sticky toffee pudding . IT was pretty pricey, but they are also using cream from an Irish heritage cow, so to me, that's enough to support, especially when... More

We read about this place a lot before ever coming to Ireland and made sure it would be a stop while we're here. We are SO glad we did! They have some pretty unique flavors, the most popular being the sea salt flavor (sounds weird, tastes awesome). My personal favorite is the brown bread flavor, literally brown bread mixed with...
